Customize URL/URI/UID of a grafana PUBLIC dashboard

Hello, I’d like to know what’s the process of customizing the public dashboard URL.
I’m trying to build an small kiosk. And customizing the URL will make my life easier.
I know that you can achieve custom URI with the JSON, but that’s for the dashboard itself and not the public URL.

When I looked in the JSON file, I couldn’t find an option for the public URL dashboard.
Also, I the field of the URL can’t be edited.

Is there a way?
I want to change the UID ( d88d8df200dc47219dfc06a2a7d0b490) to something more legible for the kiosk.


  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Change the UID of the public dashboard url
  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Tried looking on google like an insane person, no luck
  • What happened?
    No luck
  • What did you expect to happen?
    Be able to change the URI of the URL
  • Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?


Welcome @franciscolafe

What is the requirement to have this change of the URL?

I’m trying to build an small kiosk. And customizing the URL will make my life easier to providing the kiosks.

The requirement would be to have it customized, make it my own uid instead of the random string that it’s difficult to input into another device without copy-paste.-

I managed to do this by opening the litesql3 db file for grafana and then simply editing the UID for the intended change.

Doable but not recommended :grin: I would also submit a feature change to allow for friendly url and not some odd uid

Already submitted, thanks for the suggestion!
