Import custom dashboard as a war room template


I have a detailed dashboard built with numerous widgets.

I am trying to see if this can be made into a war room template.

Is there any way to import the saved json file of my dashboard into a war room template.

Hi there,


Check out this page in the docs: 


Specifically the section "Import Custom Dashboards and Templates with the REST API."


Let me know if this helps you.



Thanks for the response.
I did come across this article, but i believe it only gives me the option to import a custom dash board.

What I am looking for is a Warroom template to be created using an existing custom dashboard.

In other words
Export a custom dash board and import it to a warroom template that can be used to open warrooms.

Hi there,


I did come across this in our docs on war rooms: -- but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for. Let me ping the broader team.



Thanks for reaching to the team for me with regards to this.

This link helps to create a template from an existing warroom and not to import a custom dashboard as a warroom template

Of course, happy to help!

I think one work around will be to make sure that the custom dashboard is shared and copy the shared URL.

Once you start the war room, you can add a new iframe widget and use the shared url of the dashboard.




thats a good suggestion.

but looking for a way to import the json file of a dash board as a warroom template


that way the jason file can be edited and I can have custom warroom templates.

I pinged the broader team and they said:


"We don't have a way to import/export warrooms as json files at this time. But we do have a way to save warrooms as templates in a database, and then we can reuse them by accessing the "Start Warroom from Templates" feature.



Thank you for checking.
was hoping as there would be a way using the API after looking at the example in the link you shared (


It does have the term warroom in it. was hoping that their could be some addtional code that would help get the information.

Any idea why they have mentioned warRoom.


curl --user user1@customer1:secret

  "schemaVersion" : null,
  "dashboardFormatVersion" : "3.0",
  "name" : "Analytics-BrowserData",
  "warRoom" : false,
  "template" : false
