I have a cloned dashboard currently with my name as an owner.

How do i change the owner to ex:"YYY".is there any possible way to do it?

Change the dashboard permission into app context.

This will create an entry in local.meta under the apps metadata directory. Edit the file from the command line (vi/notepad) and change the owner inside that.

Do either a debug/refresh or a restart of that search head.

You can then move the file back via the Gui to private in the new account if you want.

You could directly edit and shuffle files around but the method above has the least command line steps required.
