Opening Oculus Dash with Desktop from Game

In our games, we sometimes need players to interact with the desktop (e.g. after opening a Website in the OS browser to let the player interact with privacy settings only available via a Web interface). With SteamVR, we can open the in-VR dashboard with the desktop view via by using a simple API call:
OpenVR.Overlay.ShowDashboard("valve.steam.desktop");
What this does is: a) show the SteamVR in-VR dashboard (that's equivalent to pressing the system button), and b) activate the desktop overlay.
Is something like that also available when using the Oculus native SDK?
I have tried finding it in the documentation but wasn't able to. If this is not possible, yet, could you please add this? We'd like to offer the same features both when using SteamVR and when using Oculus natively.
