Automate dashboard creation via REST API

Hello guys, 


Do anyone come cross api that would help to create new dashboard with widgets from existing dashboard or clone a exiting dashboard with its widgets? 

We are creating dashboad per release and we create dashboard then clone the widgets to the new dashboard, it is many manual steps and it is a pain. 


Any ideas?

Hello Fayez,

here you can find the API for dashboards:

The widgets are located in the `data` field:

Unfortunately, the part of the API concerning widgets is not documented yet, so I can suggest making some requests with the developer tools of your browser open and then imitate the same requests in your code.

Let us know if you need assistance, we'll be happy to help.

Hello, Liubov Dievskaia 

I am creating a new Dashboard according to

-d '{
 "name": "4T",
 "owner": {
   "id": "230bbea5-78e0-4ce3-be5c-8bea6357f28c"

"data": {
   "widgets": [
       "id": "youtrack-issues-list",
       "directive": "widget-custom",
       "grid": {
         "width": 2,
         "height": 2,
         "y": 0,
         "x": 2
       "config": {
         "created": "2023-11-13T12:44:47.943Z",
         "customWidgetConfig": {
           "search": "commented by: me",

The Dashboard is being created, but not for the user whose ID I'm passing in "owner": {
   "id": “230bbea5-78e0-4ce3-be5c-8bea6357f28c” }, 

but for the user under which I'm authorizing.
-H 'Authorization: Bearer perm:dmV0YXNzcw==.DjYrNzA=.hf5uWxneWEdVd0AGmmkmYVmLPQ00KA' 
How can I correctly pass the "owner" to create the Dashboard for a specific user?

Thank you!!!
