Exporting dashboards to send to others

Export dashboards as JSON files that you can send to colleagues. Depending on their user role and security profile, your colleagues might see different results after they import your dashboard.

About this task

Exported dashboards can be imported by users of QRadar® Pulse or IBM Cloud Pak for Security 1.5.0 or later.


  1. Open the dashboard that you want to export, and click the Export as JSON icon in the upper right of the page.
    The following reserved characters in the dashboard name are removed from the file name when you export a dashboard: / ? < > \ : * | ". Avoid using these characters when you name the dashboard.
  2. If you use parameters in the dashboard, select whether to export the dashboard with default parameter values or without. The exported JSON file downloads to your local Downloads directory.
  3. Import as a new dashboard or share it with colleagues.
  4. To download the dashboard item data in PNG format, click the camera icon on the upper right of the item.
