I would like to somehow copy an APM dashboard (not web) from one AppMon install to another in a different country. They have extremely similar configuration otherwise. Is this possible? I have seen answers to exporting and importing wed dashboards but this is not a web dashboard. I'd also like to know (if this possible) whether it would work from a 6.3 install to a 6.1 install?
Ari is correct, just save your dashboard locally (only saves the dashboard layout/filters, no data) and it can be opened with any Dynatrace client connected to any Dynatrace Server.
Additionally if you can connect multiple Dynatrace Servers to a single client (full client required) you can save the dashboard directly to the new server.
They are all saved on the Dynatrace server so they can be copied from there. You can also download them all at the same time using the thick client and making a supportarchive.
Open System Information dashlet, expand your server, expand support information, then expand and make sure all "dashboards" are checked.
You can create a support archive to get the xml files and then if you have access to the target server, unzip them onto the target server (the server will pick them up after a restart). If you cannot unzip them on the server, you could create a fast pack of them to deploy easily from one server to another, but it is probably less effort to just open them all and then save them one at a time to the target server.
I wanted to open a 7.0 dashboard into my 6.5 client on a different server - so I had just saved the dashboard locally and then tried opening it on the new client. However, it refused to work. What resolved the issue was by editing the xml file and modifying the dashboard version to the version i was moving to.
