Sharing New Dashboards

Dashboards can be shared internally among team members, with other teams, within the wider organization, or publicly, by configuring a public URL for the dashboard.

As an owner of a dashboard, you can share the dashboard with any team and provide the Viewer or Collaborator access permission.

Access Levels in Dashboard

The RBAC-based permissions determine how users can interact with Dashboards. They establish what capabilities are allowed or denied for a user or a team. For more information on RBAC rules, see RBAC Rules for Dashboards.

The table below summarizes the various ways a dashboard can be shared and effective permissions for users.

Share a Dashboard with Teams

Dashboards can be shared across a user's current team or a selected set of teams, allowing other team members to view the dashboard, as well as edit the panels if they have edit permissions within the team.

If a dashboard has been shared with another team, a user within that team can then copy it to make it their own if they wish.

To share a dashboard:

  1. Select the dashboard you want to share.

  2. Click the Dashboard Settings (three dots) icon and select Dashboard Settings.

  3. In the Dashboard Settings page, use the Shared With drop-down.

  4. Select one of the three options:

    • Not Shared: If selected, the specified Dashboard cannot be shared with a team or selected team the owner is a member of.

    • All Teams: If selected, the owners of the Dashboard can share with all the teams that they are part of.

    • Selected Teams: If selected, the owner of the Dashboard can share with a selected list of teams. You can select one of the available teams in the drop-down, and select member permission:

      • View Only: This permission allows members to view the Dashboard.

      • Collaborator: A collaborator can edit the Dashboard.

Enable Public Sharing

Dashboards can be shared outside of the internal team by using public URLs. This allows external users to review the dashboard metrics while restricting access to changing panels and configurations.

The scope parameters, including scope variables, are included in the Dashboard URL. External users with a valid link can change the scope parameters without having to sign in. They can edit either on the UI or in the URL. The scope parameters are passed to the standard request header, consisting of a question mark, followed by the parameter name, an equal sign, and the parameter value. To edit a parameter in the URL, simply replace it with the desired one.

  1. Select the dashboard you want to share.

  2. Click the Dashboard Settings (three dots) icon and select Dashboard Settings.

  3. In the Dashboard Settings page, enable the Public Sharing slider.

    Warning

    When enabled, the dashboard is visible with scope parameters to anyone with the link. If this setting is disabled, the link will no longer work, and the setting will need to be re-enabled and shared again in order for the dashboard to be accessed.

  4. Copy the public sharing URL for sharing.
