Create dashboards that has json as the dashboard content using API

I recently came across creating the dashboards in SPLUNk that has json as the content (not XML) using Dashboard studio. But I am not able to create these dashboards using the rest end point that we have to create the dashboards with XML as it's data i.e 

splunk_server + '/servicesNS/' + app_author + '/Development/data/ui/views/
 
Please suggest me if there is way to automate creating these kinds of dashboards.
 
Thank you.

I hope you have used below API for creating  dashboard.

curl -ku admin:changeme https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/admin/search/data/ui/views/ -d 'name=newdash' -d 'eai:data=<put your xml here>'

 

For Deployment of Dashboards generated from Dashboard Studio, you still need to send XML which will have JSON definition. 

You can find the dashboard XML in same folder where old one are created. It will look like this.

You have to pass this XML as eai:data parameter in API.

 

Sample API Call:

 

curl -ku admin:admin123 https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/admin/search/data/ui/views/ -d 'name=newdash' -d 'eai:data=<dashboard version="2" theme="light"><label>Sample Dashboard Studio 1</label><description></description><definition><![CDATA[{"visualizations":{"viz_GnINCxpe":{"type":"viz.pie","options":{},"dataSources":{"primary":"ds_6EQA5AdB"}}},"dataSources":{"ds_6EQA5AdB":{"type":"ds.search","options":{"query":"| makeresults count=5 \n|  eval a=1 \n|  accum a \n| stats count by a"},"name":"Search_1"}},"defaults":{"dataSources":{"ds.search":{"options":{"queryParameters":{"latest":"$global_time.latest$","earliest":"$global_time.earliest$"}}}}},"inputs":{"input_global_trp":{"type":"input.timerange","options":{"token":"global_time","defaultValue":"-24h@h,now"},"title":"Global Time Range"}},"layout":{"type":"grid","options":{},"structure":[{"item":"viz_GnINCxpe","type":"block","position":{"x":0,"y":0,"w":1200,"h":400}}],"globalInputs":["input_global_trp"]},"description":"","title":"Sample Dashboard Studio"}]]></definition><assets><![CDATA[{}]]></assets></dashboard>'

Just try this and let me know if any issue.
