Same Dashboard on multiple databases


#1

Hi,

I wondering a way to duplicate dashboard on differents databases with same structures.

I do have a pool of similar databases and need the same dashboard for each.

Any ideas ?

TIA

You could edit the database. Not sure what you’re using, but in MySQL’s workbench, you can copy and paste the rows to create new report_cards (questions). Then need to check the id’s are all unique and changed the database id.
Similar for the report_dashboardcard and report_dashboard (bit trickier as the report_card references will be different).

Pain to maintain though as any changes would have to be done across all the new questions/dashboards.

You could just run mulitple instances of Metabase. Have one source instance and migrate the data from the core database to your multiple instances. Provided each instance has a different database connection, would work well.
