Pro Tip - Dashboard JSON tricks

There are things that can be done in Dashboards through the JSON definition, that cannot be done through the UI. For an ASCII art need, I needed that a vertical tile be as slim as possible. Through the UI, the minimal width of a tile is 4 units, and in JSON appeared as:

 

 

      "bounds": {
        "top": 722,
        "left": 1216,
        "width": 152,
        "height": 152
      },

 

 

Changing the JSON definition to the one below, yielded a tile half the width:

 

 

 

      "bounds": {
        "top": 722,
        "left": 1216,
        "width": 76,
        "height": 152
      },

 

 

 

 

If you know other Dashboard JSON tricks, post them below!

I have done similar trick to allow Single Value tiles to become as tiny as possible. They can be shrinked into 38x38 which is 1x1 in the GUI. This enable you to make very simple and small traffic light indicators to anything that can be resolved in Single Value graphs. 

Absolutely great if you need a lot of input covered in smaller areas!
