In the documentation I read the following:
"Viewing a web dashboard requires a Dynatrace user account to login but a dashboard can also be made publicly available without the need to login."
But I can't find the option to share it publicly, can somebody guide me to the solution?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In 6.3, there will be a public mode for web dashboards so users will not have to login.
In the mean time, a work around could be to create a local DT account that has limited permissions and give that out for Web access.
Correct, in 6.3 we have a public mode. With a dummy user (added to the URL) you can avoid the need of a login. The good thing with this approach is, that the admin can control the access of certain system profiles for this public dummy user via the permission settings.
Well but that's not sharing publicly for me, that is just a shortcut for the login.
We need a solution where only the Dashboard content is shared and the user is not able to create new Dashboards and access all of our measures.
Hi Jason, i wanted to follow this approach but i have created the dashboard using Admin ID, now i want to follow your approach where i use a dummy ID with less privileges and share that ID with everyone. is it possible to change the ownership for that dashboard from admin to some other ID perhaps from the config (i don't see an option in the UI).
are you using 6.3 EAP to test it?
Simple to do: Share the admin created dashboard. Then login with the other user ID. The user should see in the shared tab the shared dashboard. Select dashboard in the overview and copy it. Or you can export/import the dashboard.
you can modify the XML file where we store the metadata for each dashboard (see owner). Make sure that you have a backup before you modfy it.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- ATTENTION - THIS IS AN AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED FILE -->
<!-- Manual changes can cause severe problems and system instability -->
<!-- Apply manual changes only if you have received explicit instructions from Dynatrace Support -->
<metadata owner="admin" shared="true" name="Support dashboard" id="d38e1146-c28c-452b-a7ed-55cf99e5b229" modificationdate="1452780361114" version="16" revision="bcccf5e1-c689-4d10-8598-bc55896e9ba4" />
You can find the dashboards in the Dynatrace installation folder:
You still need to login as we need to make sure that the user also have privileges to see that data. thats why the login is still required in 6.2
In 6.3 there is an option to provide links that do not require a user login!
Web Dashboard is part of your Implementation and if its AD configured environment then access is required.
I don't this Dynatrace 6.2 has Non Login URL capabilities but check with your AD Team if they can create one internally bypassing the credentials authentication.
