Are you able to download Dashboards from Portal for ArcGIS? I noticed you can download web mapping applications but I can't figure out a way to download a Dashboard. Is it possible to move a dashboard from one Portal to another Portal without using the ArcGIS Online Assistant? It would be best not to have to rebuild.

My experience is that Dashboards are not movable or copy-able and require a rebuild from scratch.

I open the current Dashboard on one screen and then emulate the work in the new environment.

I have read or been told that it might be feasible to copy a dashboard via json or was it xml?

Anyway, I recall trying to copy one time and it was just a real cluster.

Was much easier to do what I describe above.

And I think all I was trying to do was to point at a new data source, everything else was the same except the name of the hosted feature layer.

If someone could create a tool for doing this, wow, it would be a huge hit.

Hi Adam,

Confirming Paul's statement in his post that dashboards are "... not movable ..." is correct.

You can clone a dashboard from one portal to another using the ArcGIS API for Python, please take a look at this esri Knowledge Base technical article,

Hope this helps,
