Is it possible to use the AWS api to create Cloudwatch graphs?

Question:

Is it possible to create graphs programmatically in a Cloudwatch dashboard using the AWS API or a SDK?

Edit I’d like to use the API to create Metric and Text widgets in the Cloudwatch Dashboard. I do not want to manually create each graph.

Answer:

I contacted AWS technical support. This is a snippet of the response:

Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment… I went ahead and created a feature request to our CloudWatch team…

The answer is “No”, this is not possible at this time.
