Creating dashboards can be a laborious task, even more, when you need thousands of them to manage your devices separately and dynamic dashboards is not an option. That's why it comes in handy the ability to copy a dashboard but based on a different device as a data source.
Both Duplicate and Replicate functionality render a Static Dashboard, the only difference is the host dashboard. While Duplicate uses a Static Dashboard as a starting point, Replicate copies from a Dynamic dashboard.

Following the below steps, you'll be able to Duplicate/Replicate to a Static dashboard but based on a different device as a data source. Bear in mind that ideally, the selected device should have the same variable labels so every widget can populate correctly as the original one, regardless if the parent dashboard is Static or Dynamic.

Step 1: Search the dashboard to Duplicate/Replicate from.
Step 2: Click on the Duplicate/Replicate icon. A modal window opens.
Step 3: Search and Select the device to duplicate from.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Modal will display the variables on the device which are compatible with at least one widget in the current parent dashboard.
Step 4: Click on the check mark button.
Step 5: A new dashboard will be created with the same name but prefixed by "COPY-"
