Sisense supports exporting and importing of dashboards. This is useful for copying dashboards between separate Sisense installations, and also for making backups.

Dashboards are exported as files with a ‘dash’ extension, which can then be imported.

Exporting a Dashboard

To export a dashboard, do one of the following:

Option #1

In the Dashboard list on the left of the Sisense environment, click the dashboard’s menu and click Export Dashboard.
Export Dashboard

Option #2

Open the dashboard’s menu and click Export Dashboard.

Export Dashboard 2

Both of these methods will prompt you to choose a name for the exported dash file and save it to disk.

Importing a Dashboard

To import a dashboard:

  1. Hover over Dashboards list in the home page and click the ‘+’ symbol. Select Import Dashboard from the menu. You can also right-click anywhere in the dashboards list, or click on the menu of one of your existing folders to import a dashboard into a folder.
  2. Select your exported dash file. The dashboard will be added to your list of dashboards or folder. You can drag it from there to your desired location in the tree.
