Reverting a Dashboard

Is there any way to revert a dashboard without getting into the dashboard’s UI?

Backstory: A user attempted to add a Dashboard filter onto a dashboard. It was probably not configured correctly (as dashboard filters are really hard to get right, but that is another issue for another day). Ever since saving the dashboard, it now presents with an infinite-spinning loader.

JS console does show some errors. I can also pull from the Metabase if someone gives me a hint of what I should look for.

If there is any way I can somehow manually revert this dashboard to an earlier revision, knowing I can’t get into the UI for the dashboard, it would be greatly appreciated.


Nevermind, the dashboard finally eventually loaded. I ultimately tried revisiting it a couple hours later and the link appended the default filter to the URL, which I didn’t have when I first tried getting to it, so it seems having that filter query string and default value matters.

Hi @chucksense
Which version of Metabase?
Are you able to reproduce this (on a separate dashboard of course)?
EDIT: It sounds a lot like this issue, which is fixed in the upcoming 0.36.0:

@flamber - It does sound like #12518, though it’s worth noting this dashboard also suffered from - Which I’m very pleased to see is also getting some love!

In any case, we are all set for now. As always, thank you very much for your attention!

Version 0.35.3 (sorry I missed that before).
