In this support article, we discuss two methods for sharing dashboards with other users.
Dashboard sharing via email allows you to send a dashboard snapshot (either on a one-time basis or on a recurring basis using a schedule of your choosing) to colleagues or customers. This is particularly useful for generating a visual report of your infrastructure’s overall status at a specific moment in time.
Dashboards are shared as web page URLs. These URLs provide read-only access to the dashboard and expire after seven days (this is a limitation of the AWS authentication technology that LogicMonitor uses to generate these URLs).
Note: You can also accomplish dashboard sharing via the Dashboard report, as discussed in Dashboard Report.
To share a dashboard via email:
You can import or export dashboards from your account as a JSON file. This enables LogicMonitor users to harness the creativity of our customer base and share dashboard templates. This is particularly useful if you have tokenized your dashboards and widgets. Doing so allows you to simply replace token values to populate imported dashboards with new data.
Users can import dashboards that have been shared with them by navigating to Dash | Add | From file and simply uploading the received JSON file. In order to export a dashboard, navigate to Dash | Manage Dashboards | Export. This will instantly download a JSON file that you can share.
You can export a dashboard group simply by selecting the cog “Manage” icon in the Dashboard tree and selecting “Export” from the Manage Dashboard Group dialog box. This will automatically export a JSON file consisting of your entire dashboard group. A user can then import a dashboard group in the same manner as importing a single dashboard (e.g. Dash | Add | From File).
