Change Home Dashboard

#1

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?

Hi,

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

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.
