Is it possible to share ArcGIS Dashboards in a distributed collaboration?

Last Published: July 6, 2023

Answer

No, it is not possible to share ArcGIS Dashboards in a distributed collaboration. Although the sync process of the collaboration workspace is successful, the dashboard is not shared. Alternatively, the dashboards can be shared and viewed using their service URLs between ArcGIS Enterprise organizations, and between ArcGIS Enterprise organizations and ArcGIS Online organizations.

Note:
Ensure the dashboard elements, web maps, and layers used in the dashboard are shared publicly. Change the sharing level to Everyone (public). Refer to ArcGIS Dashboards: Share a dashboard for instructions and more information.
