If client_cert contains both the certificate and key, this option is not required.

Deprecated since Grafana 5. Use grafana dashboard uid instead.
slug of the dashboard. It's the friendly url name of the dashboard.
When state is present, this parameter can override the slug in the meta section of the json file.
If you want to import a json dashboard exported directly from the interface (not from the api), you have to specify the slug parameter because there is no meta section in the exported json.
