Import Dashboard via API and Overwrite Existing Dashboard

I had an idea to have some of the scripts my Ops team uses to update some of our dashboards. I'm testing this idea by exporting a test dashboard via the REST API, making some changes, and reuploading it. I'm doing this all in Powershell.

 

One thing I noticed is that when it is uploaded again with the same name, it doesn't overwrite the dashboard but instead creates a new one with "_1" appended.

 

Is there anyway around this so a new dashboard isn't created, but instead the exisiting one is just updated with the new config?

Re: Import Dashboard via API and Overwrite Existing Dashboard

Hello Harrison,

 

Unfortunately as of now, overwriting an existing dashboard is not possible. However, an enhancement is filed internally to support this in future releases.
