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.

Hello, can I set preference globally for all user.
I want to change home dashboard globally and not just for my user. any way ?

You can use the API and change home dashboard for an organization: https://grafana.com/docs/http_api/preferences/#update-current-org-prefs

Or via the UI (org preferences) of course

Hello @mefraimsson . Do you have any planned date for provisioning home dashboard? Thanks you for the information about how to do it via API.

FYI provisioning default dashboard is now possible via the grafana config file. Check the [dashboards] section.

Basically you create your default home dashboard, save the json file. When you deploy new grafana you deploy that json file alongside and point to it using the dashboards > default_home_dashboard_path property in grafana.ini.

We are on 8.0.5 and having issues changing our home dashboard. I have updated the dashboard we want to be the home dashboard in the configuration preferences and it saves. If you click home it takes you to the old home dashboard. By saving that setting it also updated our “main-dashboard.json” file correctly. I am curious if there is a setting cached somewhere else I are missing.
