How to recover deleted dashboards and investigate


#1

Hi, is there any way in Grafana to recover a deleted dashboard and find out who and when deleted it? We had a few incidents of that kind and had to recreate the deleted dashboard from scratch.

You might want to consider tightining the permissions for your dashboard
configure auditing on grafana check the grafana.ini file for options

I think i have seen auditing features on the user profiles settings

We cannot tighten permissions because we have a dozen organizations and hundreds of users. So we cannot manage all dashboards on our own.
Now I’m looking into a possibility of restricting dashboard deletion through the dashboard provider config. But it would be also useful to retrieve information about dashboard deletion events from Grafana log or notify administrators somehow about such events.
