How to link to provisioned folders in a dashboard list panel

I’m trying to create a dashboard only consisting out of several dashboard list panels. Each of these panels should show dashboards from a specific folder.

All our dashboards and folders are created using file based provisioning (yaml files for folders and json files for dashboards). Everything lands in the right spot.

Thing is that, when creating the dashboard list, the selected folder translates to a folderID in json, to identify the folder to be used in a dashboard list panel. However, during provisioning, I can only define the folderUID, which cannot be used in the dashboard list to select the folder, it seems.

This basically means that when I use provisioning on an empty Grafana, all dashboards and folders are loaded properly, but the dashboard using the dashboard list, does not point to the right folder.

Did I miss something or did I bumped into an issue, in which case I’ll open up a GitHub ticket.

I am bumping this thread as it was the first result on google.
