    Does anyone have any suggestion on how to efficiently backup dashboards? The only way I been successful in performing this task is to restore the database (to a text env) and export the dashboard and re-import into production. Not ideal. Thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

    It does not work to take the row from the database for that dashboard and just reinsert it back into the table? You have to do the export and import for it to work?

    I was under the impression that you could not reinsert the row back into a table based on how the dasboards tables are designed. Have you had success in using this method?

    tbnLocalDashboard and tbnPanelAlarmSource might be enough, but we're not entirely sure how much other tbnPanel* - These are the tables we believe we need to restore

    If it only a couple of dashboards there is always the desinger GUI and import dashboard from XML. You can cut and paste the XML from the DB backup.


    If inserting them direct to the table does not work and you have a larger number, you could use the ndg sdk to upload and publish the XML too.  Would be a fairly simple script.
