Backup issues when using Grafana Backup Tool


Hello everyone! I am on
Grafana version: {'commit': 'afb9e8e5f3', 'database': 'ok', 'version': '8.3.2'}
OS: CentOS 7

and I am trying to backup my dashboards using Grafana Backup Tool (grafana-backup · PyPI) to AWS s3 and it is failing with the message:

query dashboard uri: http://localhost:3000/api/dashboards/db/lxc
[DEBUG] status: 404
[DEBUG] body: {'message': 'Not found'}

however if I am querying same dashboard when using uid everything is OK:

curl http://localhost:3000/api/dashboards/uid/3FSaVZriz
  "meta": {
    "type": "db",
    "canSave": true,
    "canEdit": true,
    "canAdmin": true,
    "canStar": true,
    "slug": "lxc",
    "url": "/d/3FSaVZriz/lxc",
    "expires": "0001-01-01T00:00:00Z",
    "created": "2021-12-13T12:40:33Z",
    "updated": "2021-12-13T12:48:20Z",
    "updatedBy": "admin",
    "createdBy": "admin",
    "version": 4,
    "hasAcl": false,
    "isFolder": false,
    "folderId": 0,
    "folderUid": "",
    "folderTitle": "General",
    "folderUrl": "",
    "provisioned": false,
    "provisionedExternalId": ""

I know this tool is not maintained by grafana, but I was hoping someone could explain more about API and why I could have these issues, since every other component (User, datasources, orgs) are found when curling with no problems:

curl http://localhost:3000/api/orgs | jq
    "id": 1,
    "name": "Testorgname"

Previously backup was working great and if I remember correctly there used to be no uid for dashboards, but correct me if I am wrong :thinking:

Any help is appreciated!

nice. that looks like a pretty slick tool…
