Copy a dashboard

If you want to duplicate a useful dashboard, you can copy a dashboard and then replace or modify sources to display different application, device, or network data. You can only copy one dashboard at a time. You cannot drag a dashboard to a folder to copy it.

Note:If you only want to copy a dashboard so you can change the source across the entire dashboard, you might want to consider creating a dashboard with dynamic sources instead of making multiple copies of a single dashboard.
  1. Log into the Web UI on the Discover or Command appliance and then click Dashboards at the top of the page.
  2. Select a dashboard that you want to copy.
  3. Click the command menu in the upper right corner of the dashboard page.
  4. Click Copy and complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Keep Sources to maintain the original data configurations in the new dashboard.
      Note:When you copy a dashboard with dynamic sources, the original data configurations are automatically maintained.
    • Click Modify Sources, which helps you to immediately update every region, chart, and widget within the copied dashboard with another source, and then complete the following steps:
      1. In the right pane of the Modify Sources window, click a source name. A search field opens.
      2. Type the name of a new source and then select the source from the drop-down list. Repeat this step if the dashboard contains more than one source that you want to replace.
      3. Click Create Dashboard.
    A copied dashboard with a modified version of the original title is created.
  5. To rename the copied dashboard, complete the following steps:
    1. Click the command menu in the upper right corner and the page.
    2. Select Dashboard Properties.
    3. In the Title field, type a new name.
    4. Click Save.
    Tip:To quickly copy a dashboard, type the keyboard shortcut CD and then update Dashboard Properties or modify sources.
