For customer-hosted Looker instances, customers need to manage the chromium installation themselves. This is different for Looker-hosted instances as those are managed by the Looker Team.


To learn more about it and how to install it for customer-hosted Looker instances refer to this Official Documentation


There has been some issues with the rendering process (From timeouts to incomplete renders) when rendering Looks or Dashboards to PDF/PNG formats.

To avoid these issues we recommend to use Chromium 97. Avoid installing versions 98 and 99 as these ones will probably introduce rendering problems.
