Dashboards is a powerful tool to visualize and track how your system is doing, and allows you to tackle issues and plan next steps. Learn to share all that information with your team, customers, or other stakeholders, using the following options to import, share and export dashboards, or add and share charts (or other content) in a dashboard.
Import, share, and export dashboards
At the dashboards index, you can import a dashboard as JSON.
From any dashboard, share it with one of these options:
- Copy the dashboard's permalink.
- Copy your dashboard as JSON and add it to the clipboard by clicking on the </> icon on the right corner.
- Export your dashboard as a pdf file clicking the icon.
You can also duplicate your dashboard.
Add and share charts and content from your dashboards
Add new content to a dashboard
You can add new content to any dashboard from metrics and events and query builder features.
Also, in a given dashboard, to add content:
- Click the edit button at the top right corner, then create new content by clicking the Add widget button. Add a new chart using the query builder, or add text, images, or links using our markdown editor.
- Use the + Add to your dashboard button.
From any chart, use the chart action menu on the upper right corner to copy or duplicate the chart.
