Feature Idea: API to update Dashboards within Data App



I am using API to update my Dashboards. However, the API currently does not have the ability to update the Dashboards within Data App. As a workaround, I update the dashboard via API and import it again in a Data App.
This does work, but we have 5-6 dashboards in our Data App, so it becomes tedious to go over this process for all the dashboards.

Since dashboards are part of Data App, can we have API / feature built to update the dashboard within Data App directly.

We take feature ideas seriously and our product managers review every one when plotting their roadmaps. However, there is no guarantee this feature will be implemented. This post ensures the idea is put on the table and discussed though. So please vote and share your extra details with our team.


Hi there @smahajan7 - Thanks so much for this excellent use case! I’ve added a poll here so that other an weigh in and we’ll be sharing this with our team. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any other details to add.


Ultimately, we would want a full set APIs to created, update, delete data apps for automated deployments of multiple data apps to multiple accounts.


@reggie.y - Thanks for sharing your requirements here. I’ll get that +1 added to our internal feature idea :smiley:


bump - we are looking to deploy a default set of dashboards to about 260 sub-accounts and this API feature is required to achieve that goal in a meaningful way. the only alternative is to create disparate dashboards via the existing dashboard API and teach all teams to go and look for each one individually :persevere:


Hey @zackm - We can definitely get this bumped up to the product team. Though dashboarding efforts are focussed to New Relic One at the moment, it’s still a good feature idea for consideration in New Relic One dashboards as well as Insights.
