Downloading new Dashboards with Monaco

I'm trying to download all my hand build configurations from Dynatrace with Monaco, but new Dashboards seem to be excluded from the pack. I can manually click on the Download button in the UI but this is not sustainable for CI.

Hi,

You can see here all APIs supported in Monaco.

I think that API is not supported today. If that is the case, it can be a interesting product idea.

Hello, 
I might be wrong, but when I tested Monaco with the download flag, it only fetched the dashboards that were created via Monaco. To include your existing dashboards, you can export them and then re-upload them via Monaco. After doing this, using the download flag will display all your custom/created dashboards.

I think it works in the same logic as Terraform when the host was provisioned manually and you need to import it.

Hi,

I definitely can download all my dashboards (classic) with Monaco even when I have build them in browser.

This is not the case with Dashboards v2 or Notebooks, which are newer + might still be WIP.

Hi,

Are you talking about new Dashboards or Classic Dashboards?

I can download all classic dashboards without problem.

Hello,

Hmm, that's odd. I tried it, and only the present dashboards were downloaded automatically. I will double-check with the classic one. Seems like I missing something.. 
Thanks for the feedback 

@mouru The new dashboards and notebooks can only be downladed and uploaded with recent Monaco versions and it's still hidden under a feature flag (monaco >=2.14) - MONACO_FEAT_DOCUMENTS. 

Also don't forget to create an OAuth client for that and also include policies for the document service which are not yet in the docs.

Please note that new/Dynatrace Platform Dashboards and Notebooks are not yet supported by Monaco.

While it is true that you can activate support for them already via a feature flag, flags are generally used in Monaco to aid development, internal feedback, and incremental releases - and not meant to be modified. Thus they are also not documented.

Support for new Dashboards and Documents will be part of the upcoming 2.15.0 release. Within the next few days, documentation will describe how to configure them, with the release following soon after.

---

While you can turn the feature on via the flag as described, please note that:
* configuration might still change, and any new dashboard downloaded with a current release of Monaco may not be compatible with the 2.15.0 release.
* Dynatrace Support won't be able to help you with any issues if you're using unreleased features/change feature flags from default. (With the exception of a handful of flags you can find described in the documentation.)

Best,
