Dashboards & Visualizations

How to move the App a Dashboard (view) belongs to via REST API?

Hi all,

Is it possible to move a dashboard (view) from belonging to one app to another via the REST API? I have an app called 'Eddie's Test App' and I would love to move it from the Search app to the MyApp app.

I know I can do this via the Settings menu -> Views -> find it on the list and then choose Move and select which app to move it to — this works.

So, I would assume that I should be able to do this via the REST API, after all I can see it by browsing the API:

https://myserver:8089/servicesNS/nobody/-/data/ui/views/eddies_test_app

Which shows it has a property called eai:appName that is set to the app it belongs to (and changes when I move it via the GUI).

But when I try to do a cURL request to make the change, it fails. If I try:

curl -X POST -k -u un:pw https://nzsplunk.globaltest.anz.com:8089/servicesNS/nobody/search/data/ui/views/eddies_test_app \
-d user=nobody \
-d app=MyApp

This fails with the message:

In handler 'views': Argument "appName" is not supported by this handler.

I've tried leaving out the user data, using the GET method and using eai:appName or appName instead of app — all fail with the same message.

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks
Eddie

Hi,

You need to use /move to move knowledge objects from one app to another app.

Try this

curl -X POST -k -u un:pw https://nzsplunk.globaltest.anz.com:8089/servicesNS/nobody/search/data/ui/views/eddies_test_app/move -d user=nobody -d app=yourapp
