cloudwatch_put_dashboard: Creates a dashboard if it does not already exist, or updates...

Description Usage Arguments Value Request syntax

View source: R/cloudwatch_operations.R

Description

Creates a dashboard if it does not already exist, or updates an existing dashboard. If you update a dashboard, the entire contents are replaced with what you specify here.

All dashboards in your account are global, not region-specific.

A simple way to create a dashboard using put_dashboard is to copy an existing dashboard. To copy an existing dashboard using the console, you can load the dashboard and then use the View/edit source command in the Actions menu to display the JSON block for that dashboard. Another way to copy a dashboard is to use get_dashboard, and then use the data returned within DashboardBody as the template for the new dashboard when you call put_dashboard.

When you create a dashboard with put_dashboard, a good practice is to add a text widget at the top of the dashboard with a message that the dashboard was created by script and should not be changed in the console. This message could also point console users to the location of the DashboardBody script or the CloudFormation template used to create the dashboard.
