Can I backup Dashboards or Monitors?

Using our APIs it's possible to write a script to backup monitor and dashboard definitions as code. Doing so not only allows for version control, but also allows those users with multiple Datadog accounts to create a set of baseline monitors and dashboards to be deployed in each new account.

See the following projects as examples of how these backups can be accomplished:

Special thanks to contributors from Brightcove, Shopify and Zendesk for sharing these projects!

There are Monitor specific examples here as well.
