Dashboard Backup & restore

Hi , we are using grafana and wanted to know the best way to back-up & restore grafana dashboards(multiple dashboards) from one server to other server?? so that we dont have to rebuild the panels again and again.

Is there any feature from your end to get back-up of all the dashboards and restore 'em all to new server.

The easiest way to do this is to use a tool called Wizzy.

The dashboards are stored in the dashboard table in the Grafana database so you could also export them and import via SQL if Wizzy doesn’t work for you. Or you could also do via the API but there is no export all function so you would have to loop through all the dashboards one by one.

It seems that there is no way to list all the dashboards using the search api (the api is limited to 1000 enterites)

Is there a way to get all dashboards without connecting to the mysql directly?

That is a default limit, but you can specify your own limit. Please, try:

Dear @praphooldhole,

we found another tool which might also be helpful in this context.

With kind regards,
