In one of the dash board it has lot of graphs there. Now, is there any way we can try to pull the values of each graph ?

From the docs-

A dashboard item is similar to a gadget, in that it provides discrete dynamic content that a user can use to customize their dashboard. However, dashboard items use modern rendering technologies like AMD, Soy, LESS, etc. Dashboard items are also able to share web-resources, which greatly improves page load performance by reducing the number of requests and the overall size of data to be transferred on a dashboard load.

Currently, it doesn't seem possible to fetch list of items of dashboard using REST API, similar question here -


In the latest API documentation - 

There is no method getting dashboard item list, something like - GET /rest/api/2/dashboard/{dashboardId}/items/ 

Hi Tarun,

what data we need to pass in 'itemid' in URL which is under 'dashboard/items'.

Say for example : one of the  dash board has a single Pie Gadget.

Now, what I need to pass a value for an itemid in 'api/2/dashboard/{dashboardId}/items/{itemId}/properties' URL ?

Please provide an answer.

I will suggest you to create your own REST end point using the script runner plugin or the REST plugin module and use the Java API of the script runner to fetch the details of the dashboard gadgets.

There is no possibility to find out the itemid from API. Only way I find the itemid is from source code of page. 

<div class="dashboard-item-frame gadget-container" id="gadget-17972-chrome">

 "17972" is the itemid.


I'm not sure when this ID is changed and if it'll stay the same all the time... but at least there is some way how to find it out.
