Is it possible to get the creator of a Look from Looker’s usage database? It looks like I can get usages of a given look, but not the name of original user who created it.

I created a view based on the Usage stats and called it “All Looks in Looker”, it’s got the name of the Look, a link to it, the Space it’s in, the person who created it, and the date/time of creation.


I’m not sure if this URL will work, but the important thing is “explore/i__looker/look”


https://{{YOUR_HOST_NAME}}/explore/i__looker/look?dynamic_fields=%5B%5D&f%5Blook.title%5D=-%22Null%22&filter_config=%7B%22look.title%22:%5B%7B%22type%22:%22!%3D%22,%22values%22:%5B%7B%22constant%22:%22Null%22%7D,%7B%7D%5D,%22id%22:0%7D%5D%7D&look_id=169&query=R5pWMKY&show=data&title=All%20Looks%20in%20Looker&vis=%7B%22type%22:%22table%22%7D

Perfect, thanks @Robert_Ellman. I didn’t know about the “look” explore.
