   string token = getToken();

   string userID = getUserID("<User Email>", token);

   JArray curr_shares = getDashboardShares("<Dashboard ID>", token);

   addShares("<Dashboard ID>", curr_shares, userID, "user", "view", false, token);
  • In the getToken() method, replace the following:
  • <Admin User Email> with the admin's userID

    var client = new RestClient("http://<Host:Port>/api/v1/authentication/login");
    var request = new RestRequest(Method.POST);
    request.AddHeader("cache-control", "no-cache");
    request.AddHeader("accept", "application/json");
    request.AddHeader("content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
