The export and import process for Dashboards is documented in the CA Performance Manager Wiki Docs.
This process, when performed in REST as the default admin user, is what allows the Dashboard to become usable by other users. When the admin user imports the Dashboard, it takes on the Admin users rights, which turn it into a 'shared' Dashboard.
This is accomplished via REST API tools. See the following Wiki Doc section for REST based Dashboard import/export instructions.
This has been tested. The high level steps are:
- Log in to CAPC UI as user with access to the dashboard. Find and note the page ID per the user guide.
- Run a REST GET to obtain the Dashboards XML code definition.
- Run a REST POST against the test URL per the documentation.
- Once we have a success for the import test run change the URL from to import, run the REST POST again to import the Dashboard.
