There is currently no way of grouping dashboards, other than tag them with a common label. Things get messy quickly, when multiple teams create new dashboards or there are many apps that need to be monitored.
I've long been wishing for a way of grouping related dashboards. GDash used to offer something like this and it was very helpful in organizing dashboards.

Grouping dashboards into folders may look something like this:

Good feedback and mockup! I think this makes a lot of sense, Dashboard folders will also be good abstraction to place permissions on when permission on dashboard / dashboard folders will be needed.

In my company we were currently trying to use the Organizations feature to separate out different group's dashboards, but this causes problems for some managers who oversee different but related groups when they try to view the dashboards side by side in separate browser windows.

I realize we're using organizations incorrectly, so I am excited for this feature (Dashboard groups/folders with permissions) to be implemented.

We are really looking forward to this at my company. Will this 4.0 release include some kind of group permissions on the folders used to organize the dashboards?

As a larger firm which is integrating grafana into a broader suite of applications, we are not looking to use the administrative security features of grafana directly but indirecty by integrating our security system (SAML) with grafana. In particular we want to associate our managed ACLs with the grafana folders.

Also note that in our system - we are OK with everyone having read-only access to all folders and dashboards, but restricting write access to the dashboards based on the folder/acl permissions.

Also we would like APIs or some other way to automate the generation of folders. When a user tries to edit a dashboard we would want to perform the authorization check to see if they have write access to the folder / dashboard or not.

Could the alerts defined in these dashboards also be categorized in folders in the related views ? (if not already the case)

@f1erro it is being worked on in the develop branch and will be included in Grafana 5.0 alpha release in the next few days. The alpha version will not include folder permissions but that feature will be included in the first beta release.
