Has there been a change in how URLs are constructed for Dashboards?  All the links that I've been using for publicly-facing dashboards used to have an "apps/opsdashboard" string in the URL, but now it appears that AGOL is giving me "apps/dashboard" instead.

The main problem with this is that I've got a dashboard that works fine via a URL that I copied a few weeks ago (opsdashboard), but which has a data connection problem when viewed with the URLs that AGOL is giving me now (dashboard).

Below is a description of the specific behavior I am seeing.

This is a dashboard link that I copied from AGOL few weeks ago and it works fine:
https://washoe.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/fea7e9003d9b4f968163867bfa86fdae

PROBLEM -- This is what AGOL sends me to now (via View Dashboard) and the dashboard seen through this link has the right widgets, but no connection to the data:
https://washoe.maps.arcgis.com/apps/dashboards/fea7e9003d9b4f968163867bfa86fdae

This is the link in the URL box on the item page:
https://www.arcgis.com/apps/dashboards/fea7e9003d9b4f968163867bfa86fdae  Also displays the widgets, but no connection to the data.

-----------------------------------
Here is a COVID dashboard URL in the "old" style, that works:
https://washoe.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/dab78e1c080b4f02b182c3c65bf91ea6

This is what View Dashboard sends me to now:
https://washoe.maps.arcgis.com/apps/dashboards/dab78e1c080b4f02b182c3c65bf91ea6This works.

This is the link in the URL box on the item page:
https://www.arcgis.com/apps/dashboards/dab78e1c080b4f02b182c3c65bf91ea6Also works.

Any idea what is wrong with that that PROBLEM dashboard?

Yes there was an update to ArcGIS Online and Dashboards last week. This blog post outlines some of the new features along with the details of the URL changes. You can still access and edit the dashboards you mentioned above with apps/opsdashboard if you first open the Dashboards Classic from the App Launcher (the nine dots beside your login) or using the saved URL that you have.

As for the data sources not working when opening with apps/dashboards (now the default experience), this is known limit at the moment due to the use of a table nested in a map service as the element data source. Multiple teams are working on a resolution but this may take some time. You can continue to view and edit the dashboard with Dashboards Classic (as described above or through your saved url) . Another approach is to add the tables to a web map, add that web map to the dashboard and use the table from the map element as the data source for your other elements. You can stack your map underneath another element so it's not immediately visible in the dashboard, just be sure to maintain some minimal width and height to the map element.

Hi! Will this new Dashboards be available in Enterprise? I would like to start using some of the new features but within Enterprise and not AGOL.
