Change Home Dashboard


I tried to change the homepage of Grafana but I can’t save the changes.
also, I tried to add a new home dashboard but it didn’t appear in the select box

Please advice.

PS: how can I change the dashboard json file as a workaround?

Best Regards



You have to star the dashboard you want to be your home dashboard.

How to redirect root index to a dashboard page instead of home page?


I am not sure about how to start the dashboard, but I have many dashboards on my Grafana.

Please let me know.

Best Regards




Thanks :slight_smile:


but still i am seeing it as my default home one.


you have to create new dashboard then mark it as a favorite then go to references and select the created dashboard


cool thanks got it.Do you know can we change background of grafana dashboard?


you can change the theme to black or white


How do I do this programatically? I’ve changed the home dash, starred it and selected in preferences, but can’t see where this dashboard json is saved on the file-system, how to star or where the preference is saved.


All dashboards are stored in a database, per default sqlite. Use the API to change preferences programatically.


Can we select a different Dashboard as home during graphana provisioning?


Currently you cannot use provisioning for select the home dashboard. You have to use the API to set the selected home dashboard.
