Using API to change parent folder of dashboard

Does any one know of a way (either using Sisense API's or another way) to change the parent folder of a dashboard that I am not the owner of? I am admin and have been tasked with organizing our dashboards better but do not want to change ownership of dashboard to myself in order to move dashboards to another folder.

Hi @jmn3 ,

I think you should be able to do this using Sisense API Update a dashboard funcion.

This funtion is used to partially update a dashboard, using the data provided in the body. For your use case, I would provide the parentFolder information.
If you do get an exception related to ownership, I would try to use the parameter Tenant ID to execute the function on behalf of the owner.

Please refer to the documentation here:

I hope this gets you ton the right path! 🙂

Hello @jmn3 ,

As a sys admin, you will need to take over ownership of the necessary dashboards, re-arrange them and then grant back ownership.
You can do it with Paldi's "Dashboard Sharing Utility
We provide free trials so l
et me know if you would like to get it.

Feel free to reach out if you have further questions as we're always happy to help (:
