Hello, I’m trying to set a particular dashboard as the default for my server, but am not having any success in getting my changes to take, either via the web GUI or via the grafana.ini file. I’m trying to use the instructions at Change home dashboard | Grafana Labs
Default will not change from the stock “Welcome to Grafana” dashboard
I saved my desired default dashboard to a .json file, saved it to /etc/grafana/provisioning/dashboards/ -rw-r–r-- 1 grafana pace-admins 1850 Jul 14 16:01 Home-GT-1626292060718.json
I changed the default dashboard of my grafana.ini file thusly:
default_home_dashboard_path = dashboards/Home-GT-1626292060718.json
and cycled grafana-server – same old default holds.
I then discovered that there is ANOTHER /dashboards folder at /usr/share/grafana/public/dashboards/, so also copied my .json folder there. No change, same old default dashboard
Further, in the web GUI, if I attempt to select this (starred) dashboard and make it default, and Save, the default dashboard always returns to “Default”
So what is the trick to getting my chosen dashboard to be the default, because the documented solution is not working.
