Exporting and importing dashboard presets

About this task

Export dashboard configurations to conveniently import into other clusters or other OpsCenter instances. The dashboard configuration exports and imports as a JSON file.

The location of the opscenterd.conf file depends on the type of installation:

  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/opscenterd.conf

  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/opscenterd.conf

The export and import of presets is currently a Labs feature. To enable the feature, add the following to opscenterd.conf and restart opscenterd:

enable_dashboard_preset_import_export = True
