Custom authentication through the backend

Hey there!

We have an application, where we use an iframe to embed the Looker dashboard. Faced a challenge to authenticate a user through my application but with Looker account.

So I need to authenticate user through my app but with their Looker account.

In Looker there 3 variants of authentication, as I know:

  • Private authentication doesn’t fit, because we need our own log in;
  • Public also doesn’t fit, because you can’t embed dashboard with it;
  • Tried to use SSO: there always is created a new user with role Embed role when I generate the link.

Maybe some of you also faced this issue and know the solution. I’d be grateful for your help :)
