This article discusses how to export Dashboards created by users without Dashboard Sharing rights, and import them for utilization by other users.
Some users are provided rights to create Dashboards. They create the Dashboards which are then reviewed and approved by administrators.
The users that created the Dashboards do not have rights to share the Dashboards they create with other users.
This solution was used to export these Dashboards, and import them via REST as the default admin user. This results in the Dashboard being visible and usable by other users.
All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases
Dashboards created under a single Users My Dashboards Menu need to be used by other Users in the NetOps Portal.
The export and import process for Dashboards uses REST. It's documented in the Dashboards Web Service page of the documentation.
This process is performed using a REST API as an Administrative Role user. By exporting it, and re-importing it against the admin user, the Dashboard takes on the admin users rights. That turns it into a 'shared' Dashboard other users with access to the Menu it's placed in can see.
The steps are as follows. They are each documented on the Dashboards Web Service page of the documentation.
