I have updated a table on my dashboard but when I click to publish the update it does not show me my active dashboard as an option in the area “Replace an Existing Dashboard”. Has anyone ran into this before, what did you do to allow your updates to publish?
Hi @Emily_Beran - Welcome to the Quicksight Community!
So, correct me if I am wrong. You have updated a table on the analysis and would like to see those updates on the existing dashboard?
If yes, after making the new updates to your analysis you can click on publish on the top right corner and click on “Replace an Existing Dashboard”. In the dropdown beside it, you should be able to see your active dashboard that you have published earlier. So replacing the existing dashboard will update your dashboard with the latest updates that you have made.
Please let me know if that helped!
Hy @shravya yes that is what I am attempting to do! When I do those steps my existing dashboard does not show up as an option to replace an existing dashboard
Oh @Emily_Beran - That is weird. Are you able to see that dashboard on the dashboards tab?
@Emily_Beran and you are using the same analysis (as for the dashboard) not a copy?
Hi @Emily_Beran - Is it possible to share a screenshot what you are seeing when publishing the dashboard? This will help in understanding the issue in more details.

Hi @Emily_Beran when you click on the Publish tool bar then you can find a dialog box as Publish a Dashboard where you can select the option as Replace an existing dashboard and select the dropdown if you change the name of the dashboard before. Other than that everything is fine no other options available on this.
Thanks & Regards
and you are using the same analysis (as for the dashboard) not a copy?
Could you publish as a new dashboard and try to update it again?
Hi @Emily_Beran - When you are publishing the dashboard for the first time, you will not get see the Replace option. Publish the dashboard once and then when you edit the analysis again, you will able to see the replace option.
Please give a try and let us know.
