  • We need the code versioning ability of looker
  • But we dont want the user to have to worry about creating PR. 
  • User should be able to create reports using just the UI without code. And whatever they create should get versioned (could be in terms of sql that the tool autogenerate in the back).

I haven’t tried it myself but it could be worth checking the following:

  1. Create the dashboard
  2. Get its LookML
  3. Create LookML dashboard in its place
  4. For the end user it’s still the same but it will be present in the code

I don’t know whether you can bypass the PR though. It’s still the same repository, so you might not be able to do that but still worth checking
