The head request was denied.

  • What did you expect to happen?
    That the head request would work.

There is no technical reason to block those HEAD requests. Why is it implemented like that.

My workaround is not to just download the file, but this also genereates a lot of useless traffic for Grafana and also the person, who just wants to check if that dashboard exists.

Hi @ohdearaugustin

not a direct answer to your question but this script for download dashboards in bulk might be of interest to you:

Hi @mattabrams,

yeah I found out how to do it, but I think the default setting of not allowing HEAD request is just completely strange and not standard. I just try to download them directly and check for errors afterwards.

glad you got unblocked on this. Can’t speak to why we handle headers like that. This might make a good bug report in the repo…
