Can't save multiple schedules

One of my users wants to create 55 schedules for one dashboard, where each schedule will be filtered for a different location. Looker refuses to save any more than 12 schedules. Whenever the user adds an additional schedule and clicks ‘Save All’, a red ‘!’ and a message blink (cannot read because they disappear too quickly) over the schedule name and the modified schedule is not saved.

I am able to reproduce this behavior. I created 50 schedules for the same dashboard and can enter the site names in the filters. But I cannot add additional schedules. I get the same error as my user.

On a different dashboard, I’m able to create only 17 schedules.

Is there a limit to the number of schedules a user can create? It’s strange the max number of schedules differs by user and by dashboard. Is there some sort of validation logic preventing additional schedules from being created?

My Looker admin worked with Looker support to identify this behavior as a problem with Looker’s default HyperSQL database. The fix is to re-configure Looker to use a MySQL backend.
