Issue

An administrator observes that there is no option to share custom apps on his/her Dashboard with other users.

Resolution

A Dashboard page in Rally is specific to individual user and cannot be shared:

In the following series of steps, an administrator adds a new custom page in the workspace and shares it with other users.
A custom Dashboard is nothing more than a custom page with more than one apps added to it.

1. Click on Home icon and on "+"

2. To share a custom page with other users two conditions have to be met:
a) workspace administrator permissions
b) a workspace administrator has to select to share with other projects

In this example, "Top Project" is selected. It means that all users in "Top Project" will have access to this Dashboard.
