What is the setting to chose a dashboard X as the main dashboard?

Hi,
I’m trying to find how to set (via JS so I’m looking for the field) a dashboard as main dashboard. I mean when I go to Grafana I have this view:

And I want to have one dashboard when I go on http://myGrafanaUrl:3000

So how can I set in JSON that I starred the dashboard ?

It is not set in json the home dashboard is a property on the organisation or user profile (and saved in Grafana’s database).

User Profile page

For the dashboard to appear in the selection dropdown it must first be starred. Starred is also not a property in the json but an http action (check the api call the UI makes when you star a dashboard to see what the HTTP call looks like)

Yes I have figured out that we could do it like this, but there are no way to use JSON and the API to make it ?

If you first save the dashboard via the HTTP API, then star it using the the /api/user/stars/dashbords/:id call, then you can update your user preferences using preferences http api: http://docs.grafana.org/http_api/preferences/
