Dashboards & Visualizations

After cloning and renaming a dashboard, is there a way to get the original dashboard back?

How do you change the URL of a Splunk dashboard?

I originally had a dashboard named "System". I cloned it and named the new dashboard "System." (note the period at the end). Now, on the dashboard page, both dashboards have the same URL "10.1.1.1/en-US/app/search/system". Clicking on either one brings me to the cloned dashboard.

Is there a way to get the original dashboard back?

The original dashboard is still there, it's just unreachable because of the conflicting URLs. Clone the new dashboard again and give it a unique name that has only number, letters, and underscores in it. Delete the "System." dashboard. You should now have access to both.

The easiest way is through the CLI on your Search Head, which I assume is Linux. Login as root or splunk and do this:

find /opt/splunk/ -name *system*.xml

Then use mv to rename the file.
