Critical BUG: Dashboards variables use wrong value (previous dashboard used)

In case you have two dashboard with the same variable name with different values in it (common practice).

When switching dashboards using the “browse” options - the variable value doesn’t change event though the dashboard does (you are seeing dashboard B with values appropriate for DashboardA). Refresh of the browser solves the issue.

Seems like a critical bug (leads to people making wrong conclusions)!

To reproduce:

  1. Create DashboardA with a variable var=‘A’ (display the value in a text box)
  2. Create DashboardB with a variable var=‘B’
  3. Browse back to DashboardA var value is still ‘B’ (till you will refresh the browser)
