Is there a way to programmatically set up a default dashboard on the home page for all users?

I'm looking for a way to set a default dashboard for all users as well as a default order for the apps listed in the left column.

The order of the apps show in left app sidebar is stored in user-prefs.conf file for each user profile at location $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/user/USERNAME/user-prefs/local folder. The attribute name is appOrder and available under [general] stanza.

You can programmatically add/update the file for each user profile with your default order.

So basically we're stuck with bash or a scripting language? No administrative UI to do this, correct?
