adding a new link to dashboard, how?

Hi, does anyone know how to add a LINK to an ANALYTICS DASHBOARD? I'm getting an error and until now I could not find anyhing in documentation. 

thank you for help.

to be more specific: I need to figure out how to create a .LINK type of entry into a folder so I can add it to the dashboard.

Hi Dan !

ADD / CREATE is just wishful thinking. sad It is only able to EDIT an already EXISTING link.
If it exists you get asked: "Overwrite ?" otherwise "Not Found" as you have seen. angry

You must create first a dummy of type *.link.DFI  that you have to import by DeepSee Folder Manager
or better directly in Studio. You must then assign the correct name already there.
Folder Manager can't rename or move it !!  only Import/Export sad 

Here is a dummy link to start with.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Export generator="IRIS" version="26" zv="IRIS for Windows (x86-64) 2021.1.0PYTHON (Build 237U)" ts="2021-11-01 13:54:36">
<Document name="dummy.link.DFI">
<link 
  xmlns="http://www.intersystems.com/deepsee/library" 
  name="dummy" folderName="Links" 
  shared="true" 
  public="true" 
  locked="false"
  href=""
  title="" 
  description="" 
  keywords="" 
  owner="" 
  resource="" 
  timeCreated=""

</link>
</Document>
</Export>

Feel free to place a PRODLOG on that bug.
I will not do it. I'm not willing to wait so long. crying
I just recently received a closing message on another PRODLOG  I had placed in early 2017. angry
 

Hi Robert,

indeed it is a bug, that prevents creating a new link. Luckily fix was easy, just to comment a one line of code. I'll give it another try for fix by developers :)

FYI: this bug has been reported to development
