How to share a dashboard publicly from Enterprise 10.6.1

Enterprise question. When 'allow anonymous access to your portal' is unchecked, my dashboard can no longer be shared without a login prompt. It and all it's components are shared with everyone and the dashboard is not in any groups. Somehow WAB applications shared with everyone can be accessed without a login, but not dashboards. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just the way dashboards work on Portal (10.6.1)?


According to the Portal admin docs "The portal's anonymous access option controls access to the portal home application. The sharing options chosen for individual items in the portal control access to the underlying hosted feature services." However, it seems that the anonymous access option also controls access to the underlying hosted feature services. Is this the intent? Are most people just leaving anon access checked for public facing dashboards? Security best practices seem to indicate that anonymous access should be shut off so everything on your portal can't be browsed anonymously.
