DEAR PEOPLE FROM THE FUTURE:
Here's what we've figured out so far...
I am using the Python API to access instances of AGOL and Portal for ArcGIS. Using this API I am able to through the items, one of them is a dashboard. I downloaded it, it is a JSON definition.
I was wondering....Is it possible to publish this dashboard to the same AGOL (I do not want to worry for the links to the map and feature services used by it) using the API?
One option is to clone the existing one, but my objective is to create the dashboard from the object that was downloaded.
