I'm not sure if you have completed this yet, but make sure you use a 18.104.22.168.0 or 22.214.171.124.0 Catalog Manager client. I have an 126.96.36.199.0 client, and it does not work since it is missing some of the required columns are missing. This is is known issue/bug.
In the Available Columns list, select the following columns and arrange them in order.
Dashboard Page Name -- MISSING
Dashboard Page Path -- MISSING
Analysis Name -- MISSING
Analysis Path -- MISSING
