Feature Idea: Option to insert a link to current dashboard when creating it with the REST api



I like the dashboard api and we use it a lot “copy” dashboards between accounts. However there is one drawback, links cannot be specified when using the dashboard api. So there is always some additional manual step included after the POST (or and additional PUT, which is not less work).

I would like to have an option to specify a link to the current dashboard in the following way:

drilldown_dashboard_id : current

After the dashbaord has been created and the id is available, the api could replace this with the proper value. This would be really helpful and speed up the usage of the dashboard api.

Hey Wolfgang,
That’s a great suggestion! I can certainly see the benefit of that in the API.

I’ll get that filed internally for you, and I’ll also get a poll added here. :smiley:
