The Overview Dashboard for the types Operations, Analytics, EDI and ESB are the default dashboard, which cannot be created. The user can only Overwrite the existing default dashboard.

Once the ZIP file has been imported, the user can edit the Domain Name, User Name and the Dashboard Name, based on the requirement. The Overview dashboard cannot be edited because, it is a default dashboard and the user cannot edit the user name and the domain name for it.

  • Overwrite - If the dashboard already exists in the destination environment, then the user can overwrite the dashboard on the destination environment
