    You can grab the report from the URL given above (https://github.com/turbonomic/visualization/tree/main/embedded-visualization/Infrastructure/Sustainability). Take the one named Sustainable IT Dashboard - Private Cloud.json. You can either download the file or click on the "View Raw" link to copy/paste the whole file.

    Then, in Turbonomic (on an instance where Embedded Reporting is enabled), log in with a user who has the "Report Editor" permission granted. To check that (or add the permission if it's not done already) in the Turbonomic UI, go in "Settings" > "User Management" and edit your user (could be "administrator", but the permission is not enabled by default even for that account). Click on the "Designate as Report Editor" button to grant the permission.

    Once this is done, make sure you're logged in with that user (and log off/log in again if you just changed it) and click on the "Reports" button in the black left menu bar of the Turbonomic UI. That will launch Grafana, and if you're correctly logged in with the user having the "Report Editor" permission, you should have 5 menu items on the left.

    Then, click on the "Dashboards" menu, and select "Browse".

    Click on the blue "Import" button at the top right of the page.

    Then, you can either "Upload JSON file" with the JSON dashboard file you downloaded from the GitHub repository, or copy/paste it into the "Import via panel json" box and then click on the "Load" button.

    Finally, chose a name, chose a directory in which you want to import the dashboard, leave the ID as default and don't forget to pick up the "Turbo Timescale" datasource from the dropdown list and click "Import" at the bottom of the page.

    Et voilà ! :)
