As Terry mentioned, you cannot modify the existing Grafana dashboards since they are managed by Ambari. On Grafana restart, your changes will go away.

However, you can do one of this.

1. Create a new dashboard

Sign in as admin, Click on Home dropdown, and then "New" in the bottom part of the dropdown.

2. Clone and Edit an existing dashboard

Open a dashboard. Click on Setting Icon and use Save As.

This way your changes are preserved across restarts.

@Pradheep Shan Currently modifying the Grafana dashboards is not supported in Ambari.
