Extensions, open source tools, the Looker API, and embedding Looker
Attaching data to Looker objects
Hello!Just getting started with Looker. So far the experience has been great! In our first use cases, we'll be interacting with Looker primarily via the API to support interfaces in our native application. I am wondering what mechanisms there are for attaching arbitrary data to Looks, Dashboards, and folders (along the lines of tags which are associated with Explores). Information which might then me surfacable via the API to be used in the native app.Any pointers much appreciated.
Two active transformations cannot flow into a passive transformation in Informatica Cloud
I am facing an issue with Informatica Cloud. I am very new to the system. I need to parse a XML which has various nodes in it. For this I have used a Hierarchy Parser and from that to a Sorted output and used Joiner to join different nodes in the XML. Since there were different Joiners, I have clubbed them into a singe Joiner and send the output to the Target. But I am getting an error Two active transformations cannot flow into a passive transformation.. Informatica cloud help provided me the below link [ERROR: "Two Active transformations cannot flow into a passive transformation" while validating a mapping in IICS]: but I am not sure which is the Passive Transformation here. I am using only Source, Hierarchy Parser, Sorted Output, Joiners and Target. I am in a critical situation. So any help will be much appreciated.
timezone dropdown locale SSO
I updated the locale parameter for my SSO dashboard to translate to French.The timezone dropdown for my embedded Looker Dashboard is still in English. This list https://cloud.google.com/looker/docs/sso-embedding-time-zone-reference for the Time Zone drop-down is still in English. How do I translate the dropdown menu? Is this supported, or are the values for the dropdown only available in english? Thanks.https://cloud.google.com/looker/docs/single-sign-on-embedding#user_timezone
Id Fields now Strings?
One of the big changes in Looker API Version 4.0 is that the majority of the id fields are now strings. Two questions:Will these ids actually be non-numeric? Or can we safely cast them to numeric fields? (We store some of the ids in our database in fields with type bigint) Is there a limit to the length of the string id field? (asking for the same reason- storage of the id fields in the database)Thank you.
Looker SSO embed secret key - does this reset?
Hello,I am hoping that our Looker community can help me answer this question.We had set up a SSO embedding with a secret key which worked fine inside an iframe in our application. However, so far this happened twice where we are finding that a secret key no longer works although none of us regenerated it.Does secret key reset when the instance of Looker is upgraded? Or do some other events cause the secret key to be removed?I have reached out to the Looker online support but did not receive any definitive answer.Thanks ahead for your comment.-Tim

Empty exception while removing User from Group via Looker API
Hello,We have automated process for requesting and creating user accounts through custom access forms. Our existing users can request new access to some models in Looker. What happens under the hood is that we remove them from their existing user groups and add them to the new ones. I am using method client.delete_group_user(group_id, user_id) to remove user from group and it usually works as expected, but from time to time I receive an empty exception thrown by Looker API. User gets removed from the group with exception but without any explanation what happened. There is literally empty error message. Does anyone encounter this error before? Maybe any one has an idea why it can happen?

Can I use the API to view the last time a Dashboard was reloaded?
I have had issues where something is preventing a dashboard from updating and it goes unnoticed for a bit. Is there an API endpoint that provides the data as to when a dashboard last queried data? Looking to integrate it into my alerts system.
