How to make splunk recognize my copied xml file as a dashboard

Hello,

I would like to copy paste my app dashboards, say from the app  A/local/data/ui/views folder to the corresponding backup app, say A_backup/../views several times a day adding the timestamp to the dashboard name. The goal is to give developers the possibility to come back to their coding from like 3 hrs back.

What do I need to take into consideration for that?

I mean I would like to avoid restarting my splunk in-between to make the changes visible of course.  The developers should be able to access the A_backup and see their versioned dashboards by the corresponding name.

I know, there are perhaps better ways (github app) for that, but I would like to keep it simple as that.

I made a test with copy paste of one .xml file within the same app, but it is not visible in the UI, so I guess I miss some parts here.

Can anyone help with the above?

Kind Regards, Kamil

Hi @damucka,

if you don't want to restart Splunk after a copy of a dashboard file, the only way is to make your copy as a clonation of your dashboard via GUI, or (always via GUI) create a new dashboard manually copying the code of the first dashboard, but never via operative system, because in this way you have to restart Splunk.

Ciao.
