How to Hide a Download Button for a Particular Widget

This article explains how you can disable the 'Download' button with all its options on for a specific widget. The solution is a JavaScript code snippet that can be applied on a dashboard level.

How to Use the Script?

Firstly, you need to grab ids of the widgets you want to apply the solution. In order to do that, please open the widget in 'Edit mode' (pencil sign) and copy the id from the URL in the browser address bar:

Secondly, the script works on the dashboard level, so to add it you need to click on the 3 dots menu on the dashboard and navigate to the 'Edit Script' option:

Then paste the ids of the widgets to be affected by the script in the first row of code in []. If there are multiple widgets, separate the ids by commas. The example is ['64ad02333bb2dd002ab5fab8', '64a3c9cf366a9400329df727']. 






var widgetId = ['64ad02333bb2dd002ab5fab8'];

dashboard.on('beforewidgetmenu', (dashboard, items) => {
		var downIndex;
		var found = items.items.some((item, index) => {
			downIndex = index; return == "download";

		if (!found) {
			return false;
		items.items.splice(downIndex, 2);






Once the script is adjusted with widget ids, please save it and refresh the dashboard page. As a result, there will not be a 'Download' button available for the specific widget:
