Dashboard API

Create / Update dashboard

POST /api/dashboards/db

Creates a new dashboard or updates an existing dashboard.

Example Request for new dashboard:

POST /api/dashboards/db HTTP/1.1
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer eyJrIjoiT0tTcG1pUlY2RnVKZTFVaDFsNFZXdE9ZWmNrMkZYbk

{
  "dashboard": {
    "id": null,
    "title": "Production Overview",
    "tags": [ "templated" ],
    "timezone": "browser",
    "rows": [
      {
      }
    ],
    "schemaVersion": 6,
    "version": 0
  },
  "overwrite": false
}

JSON Body schema:

  • dashboard – The complete dashboard model, id = null to create a new dashboard
  • overwrite – Set to true if you want to overwrite existing dashboard with newer version or with same dashboard title.
  • message - Set a commit message for the version history.

Example Response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 78

{
  "slug": "production-overview",
  "status": "success",
  "version": 1
}

Status Codes:

  • 200 – Created
  • 400 – Errors (invalid json, missing or invalid fields, etc)
  • 401 – Unauthorized
  • 412 – Precondition failed

The 412 status code is used when a newer dashboard already exists (newer, its version is greater than the version that was sent). The same status code is also used if another dashboard exists with the same title. The response body will look like this:

HTTP/1.1 412 Precondition Failed
Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 97

{
  "message": "The dashboard has been changed by someone else",
  "status": "version-mismatch"
}

In in case of title already exists the status property will be name-exists.
