Backing up and restoring dashboards

To ensure you can recreate your IBM® API Connect analytics dashboards in the event of data loss, you should export them and save the files as a back-up. Then you can import the files later if needed.

About this task

API Connect does not back up dashboards, so it is good practice to create your own backups by exporting all of your dashboards.

This task only operates on the dashboard metadata, not on the analytics data.


  1. Export your dashboards as explained in the topic, Exporting dashboards.
  2. If you need to restore the dashboards, import them as explained in the topic, Importing dashboards.
