* * * WARNING: Read Before Downloading * * *

At this time, Dashboard and Widget JSON files are not interchangeable between application dashboards, meaning AssetView JSON files may only be used in AssetView and Vulnerability Management JSON

files may only be used in Vulnerability Management. If you make a mistake and import a JSON file from one application into the other, you must contact Qualys Support to have the error corrected in the database for your subscription. 

Again, there is no way to reverse this mistake within the UI, it must be done in the database.
