We have a US and UK system. I always want to clone useful dashboards from one account to the other. It would be great to “Copy” or “Import” a dashboard from another sub account.

Do you have any plans for this?

@robert_prince I will be happy to add your name to the list of users who would benefit from cloning dashboards! Putting in a feature request for you now so the Insights product managers can see. I will make sure you get an update if it’s implemented! :blush:

I’d love the ability to clone dashboards too!

Thanks for letting us know, @cchurnick! I have created a poll in this thread so that others can vote as well! :thumbsup:

This would extremely useful, creating a good dashboard takes time and nobody likes doing things twice.

We almost always need the same dashboards both in production and in staging, but our staging servers are in a sub-account.

Great context to have, @rgerosa! Thanks for letting us know! I will pass your use case along to our product team! :blush:

Hi, so I have a main account for Production, and sub-accounts for different envs.

I have a nice dashboard on my main Prod account, but would now like it for my other envs.

I see I can copy it, but only within the account, can you add copy/move to sub-account?

Hi there @ian1 - this is something that has been requested before, so I moved your post over to this feature idea. Please feel free to add your vote up above as well as any other details about how you want this to be implemented. In the meantime, I will also log this with our engineering team.


I have the same as @ian1 - a few great looking PROD dashboards that I’d like to copy of other sub-accounts. Was this ever solved by anyone?

Whats the status of this feature I have six environments and I need this

Hi All -

This feature is not currently on the roadmap, but we understand that having this capability would be extremely helpful. In the meantime, the new Dashboard API will allow you to LIST or SHOW the JSON for any dashboard, and then you can use the CREATE endpoint to add it to a different account. Its definitely a workaround, but still allows you to do it programmatically, without having to recreate widgets or pin a ton of charts to dashboards in different sub-accounts.

Plus, you can use the Dashboard API for any other CRUD functions. Its currently in beta, but we expect it to be publicly available around November/December



Hello can you point me to the dashboard api, i cant see it. If its in beta can i have access please

Hi @luke.defeo - That Dashboard API is still in beta right now. We’ll definitely update this thread when it is generally available!


Has any progress been made here?

Good news everyone! The Dashboard API is available to all Insights customers. You can find the documentation on using this API here in our Docs: https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/insights/insights-api/manage-dashboards/insights-dashboard-api

@sboxall @luke.defeo @furbaez @scollings @ian1 @rgerosa @cchurnick @robert_prince


So, I recognize that the API gives us a work around. But, for those who are not able to do everything by API, is there a status of making this easier?

Hey @tim.davis - No way in the UI yet - but my colleague @ddoyle - built a nerdpack for copying dashboards: Dashboard Generator Nerdpack
