Exports an array of dashboards and their saved searches. Export is designed to work with importDashboard. Here’s an example of how you can use CLI to export a dashboard. $oci management-dashboard dashboard export –query data –export-dashboard-id “{“dashboardIds”:[“ocid1.managementdashboard.oc1..dashboardId1”]}” > dashboards.json


oci management-dashboard dashboard export [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--export-dashboard-id [text]

List of dashboardIds in plain text. The syntax is ‘{“dashboardIds”:[“dashboardId1”, “dashboardId2”, …]}’. Escaping is needed when using in OCI CLI. For example, “{“dashboardIds”:[“ocid1.managementdashboard.oc1..dashboardId1”]}” .

Optional Parameters

--from-json [text]

Provide input to this command as a JSON document from a file using the file://path-to/file syntax.

The --generate-full-command-json-input option can be used to generate a sample json file to be used with this command option. The key names are pre-populated and match the command option names (converted to camelCase format, e.g. compartment-id –> compartmentId), while the values of the keys need to be populated by the user before using the sample file as an input to this command. For any command option that accepts multiple values, the value of the key can be a JSON array.

Options can still be provided on the command line. If an option exists in both the JSON document and the command line then the command line specified value will be used.

For examples on usage of this option, please see our “using CLI with advanced JSON options” link: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/API/SDKDocs/cliusing.htm#AdvancedJSONOptions

Example using required parameter

Copy the following CLI commands into a file named example.sh. Run the command by typing “bash example.sh” and replacing the example parameters with your own.

Please note this sample will only work in the POSIX-compliant bash-like shell. You need to set up the OCI configuration and appropriate security policies before trying the examples.

    export export_dashboard_id=<substitute-value-of-export_dashboard_id> # https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/tools/oci-cli/latest/oci_cli_docs/cmdref/management-dashboard/dashboard/export.html#cmdoption-export-dashboard-id

    oci management-dashboard dashboard export --export-dashboard-id $export_dashboard_id

Other Examples


Run the command below with your dashboard OCID. “dashboards.json” will be generated and can be used with import command.


 oci management-dashboard dashboard export --query data --export-dashboard-id "{\"dashboardIds\":[\"ocid1.managementdashboard.oc1..dashboardId1\"]}" > dashboards.json


 "result": "No output at command line as the response is redirected to the JSON file"
