Zoomdata Version

Importing a Dashboard

If you are logged into Zoomdata as a user who can maintain data source configurations but cannot maintain connection definitions (your group privileges include Can Create new Data Sources, but notCan Manage Connections), the following dashboard import behavior occurs:

  • If the data store connections used by the data sources in the dashboard charts have already been defined to the Zoomdata instance, the dashboard is successfully imported.

  • If the data store connections used by the data sources in the dashboard charts have not previously been to defined to the Zoomdata instance, the dashboard is not imported and an error message displays because your user account does not have authorization to create data store connections.

If you are logged in as a Zoomdata administrator or as a user who can maintain both data source configurations and connection definitions (your group privileges include Can Create new Data Sources and Can Manage Connections), dashboard imports should work every time.

To import a dashboard configuration:

  1. Log into Zoomdata as an administrator or as a user with the Can Create new Data Sources group privilege.

  2. On the left menu of the Home page, select Import Dashboard.

  3. Browse to and select the json file for the dashboard, then click Open. The dashboard is imported.

When you import a dashboard, the data source connections and configurations used for the dashboard charts are also imported.
