Where do I get the Grafana dashboards for MCAC?

our setup has a separate prometheus server which is used as monitoring . And we are doing deployment on vm's.
So i was going through prometheus.yaml file where changes of job name is required and tg_mcac.json file has to be changed if i am not wrong as we have multiple cluster in lowes . How do we achieve this as our configuration of scraping the targets is on regex of dns which has similar naming convetion.
Will it be possible to have json of dashboard or dashboard id to import the readymade dashboard.

The pre-configured Grafana dashboards for the Metrics Collector for Apache Cassandra (MCAC) is located in the dashboards/ directory on GitHub:

Cheers!

Thank you..

and how to filter the settings or keyspace to be allowed in

### List of metrics to allow or deny

###

### pattern: regex pattern to search, can be a sub-match or full match

### scope: 'global' will affect all data. 'datalog' will only affect the datalog

### policy: 'allow' or 'deny'

###

### The following logic is applied to each metric name name

### ====================================

### || allow | deny | behavior ||

### ||----------|----------|----------||

### || empty | empty | allowed ||

### || match | empty | allowed ||

### || no-match | empty | denied ||

### || empty | match | denied ||

### || empty | no-match | allowed ||

### || match | match | denied ||

### || no-match | match | denied ||

### || match | no-match | allowed ||

### || no-match | no-match | denied ||

### ====================================

### Default - allow all


filtering_rules:

- policy: deny

pattern: system_auth

scope: global
