Get dashboard exists when not

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana v8.1.1 on windows

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    add a dashboard with the API

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Im trying to add a dashboard with the API but i get the following error: ‘A dashboard with the same name in the folder already exists’

When I use /api/search?query= to find the name of the dashboard it is not found nor does it exist on the Grafana server.

How can i solve this? Is there a reason why this happens?

Hi @sandertemmerman, welcome to the community!

Are you able to share the API request you’re using to create the dashboard, along with the query result from your search? Then the community can try to reproduce the problem or might spot what is causing this.
