How do you have multiple developers work on a single dashboard?

We have several dashboards which we are embedding into a product of ours. We would like to be able to have our dashboard developers go in and edit a dashboard which we are embedding, but it seems like

1) Only an owner can edit a dashboard and then publish it out
2) Changing the "owner" of a dashboard requires exporting and then importing

The issue is that the embed link is used by other systems for giving our clients.
Is there any way, short of a shared login, to develop dashboards?

For example, let's say that we have a dashboard which is embedded in our application that is used my multiple users. We don't want to be in a situation where only one person on our team can edit and publish.

Hi @bpeikes 

We ran into the same issue. We solved this by making a blox-form with a post-request as an action. The designers can then choose one dashboard and it will switch ownership via de Sisense-API's . 

This does require a 100% trust with the designers. If you have external designers, then perhaps you need to add an extra layer of security 

That is a very cool idea!

Thanks Iris. 

We do a lot with the Sisense-APIs. As an OEM who gave designer-accounts to our customers we had to think a little bit out of the box. However with blox and some workflows, they are able to;

  • Create their own groups
  • Create, Edit, Delete Users
  • Transfer ownership of dashboards (only within the organisation)
