There's two interpretations I can make of this

1. You want to copy your current dashboard as a static file and send it to them - you'll need to code for this, probably better done outside Jira, and frankly, it sounds like a simple screenshot.

2. You could send them a simple link to the Jira dashboard you are using. If you share that dashboard with "everyone", and make sure that all the projects it covers have the permission for "anyone" to "browse" them, then your users will be able to see that dashboard without needing to log in at all. (Of course, everyone else will, and they'll all be able to look through the projects too)

Thanks Nic. The first one worked out.. right now I am following the same... I tried the second option, but its seeking the login details to see the dashboard.

Well, yes, it's always going to ask them to log in. They can ignore it.

One gotcha I encountered here: If the dashboard of interest is your default Jira page, the URL shown in the browser may have no pageId parameter, but looks like "jira.example.com/Dashboard.jspa" -- no good for sharing.

To get a URL containing the dashboard link with the specific pageId of interest, select your dashboard from the 'Dashboards' pulldown menu at the top of any Jira page, go to that page, and the URL will then contain pageId, such as "jira.example.com/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=123456". Yay!

This is for Jira v6.1.5. Earlier or later versions may work differently.
