Hi Masa,

Thank you for reaching out to us on this. In order to recover a deleted dashboard, you will need to access your Yellowfin Configuration database outside of Yellowfin itself, using your DBA tool (this may be MySQL workbench, SQL Server Manager, PG Admin, etc). Restoring an item from the database, either via a backup (recommended) or via the queries in the article you have linked require direct access to your database itself. For this reason, you may need to reach out to your company's Database Administrator for assistance.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this.

Cheers,

Neal

It seems that I didn't have approprite permission for the administration account.

I could found a person who has access right and we were able to recover deleted dashboard based on above procedure.
