Dashboards & Visualizations

Can you export a dashboard made in Dashboard Studio to a PDF using the API?

I created a dashboard in dashboard studio and want to setup an alert action that when a certain metric passes a threshold a PDF is emailed to a group of people. In my head the alert action is a a script that does an API call to generate a PDF and then emails it as an attachment to the group. 

However when I use this API command the output is blank. It works fine with a standard dashboard.

curl -X POST -u <user>:<password> -k 'https://localhost:8089/services/pdfgen/render?input-dashboard=my_dashboard&namespace=search&paper-size=a4-landscape ''

My question is has the API not been updated to support exporting dashboards made in Dashboard Studio or am I missing an additional parameter?

This is currently not supported in Dashboard Studio. Can you send an email to dashboard-studio@splunk.com They may have more information for you on this topic and be interested in this use case.
