Export Dashboardedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release.

The dashboard export API allows people to export dashboards along with all of their corresponding saved objects such as visualizations, saved searches, and index patterns.

Note: You cannot access this endpoint via the Console in Kibana.


GET /api/kibana/dashboards/export

Query Parametersedit

dashboard (required)
(array|string) The id(s) of the dashboard(s) to export

Response bodyedit

The response body will have a top level objects property that contains an array of saved objects. The order of these objects is not guaranteed. You should use this exact response body as the request body for the corresponding Import Dashboard API.


The following example exports all saved objects associated with and including the dashboard with id 942dcef0-b2cd-11e8-ad8e-85441f0c2e5c.

GET api/kibana/dashboards/export?dashboard=942dcef0-b2cd-11e8-ad8e-85441f0c2e5c

A successful call returns a response code of 200 along with the exported objects as the response body.
