Use Databricks APIs to manage dashboards

Dashboards are data objects that you can manage using Databricks REST APIs. You can use the Workspace API to work with them as generic workspace objects or use Lakeview API tools, which are specifically designed for dashboard management.

The tutorials listed in this section are designed to help you manage dashboards throughout their lifecycle, create new Lakeview dashboards from existing legacy dashboards, and move dashboards across different workspaces.
