Hi,

Can you please provide more information about what you would like to change in .meta files ? Additionally it is not good idea to change anything in default.meta because it will overwrite when you upgrade the app/add-on, so best practice is to change permissions in local.meta file.

sharing means would you like to share this dashboard at user level (Private), app level or global level ?
