Whats the timeframe on when the looks and dashboards are given in this list. It seems like new looks/dashboards arent in the list (created less than a couple days ago). What about old looks/dashboards? (created 5 years ago)?

Another solution.

If you have development privileges, you can find out by renaming that Explore in development mode and running Content Validator.

I dont see some looks/dashboards listed in system__activity

“By default, System Activity data is stored in Looker’s internal database. Most tables are truncated on a regular schedule to comply with storage limits. ” https://docs.looker.com/admin-options/tutorials/system-activity

How do I do this?

Okay because im trying to deterministically tell when i edit an explore, what dashboards and looks use the explore. Even if the dashboards were created 10 years ago. That way when I delete a join in an explore, I know it wont break ANY dashboards or looks

Amount of historic data is explained here in the explores section: https://docs.looker.com/admin-options/system-activity

“explore from here” on one of the tiles in a dashboard or visit the history explore fromthe system activity model in the explore main menu (like you would visit any other explore).
