Is there any way to test before merging into master whether LookML changes will break existing looks and dashboards? Specifically, detecting if objects that looks and dashboards depend on have been dropped?


Failing that, is there any way to test after merging into master?

Have you tried the Content Validator (under the Develop menu)? I’ve found that useful for what you’re talking about.


Here’s the documentation on the feature: https://looker.com/docs/data-modeling/getting-started/look-validation

Oh! I don’t have this option. Looks like time to upgrade (we’re on-premise). Thanks!
