Feature Requests: How your feedback makes Looker betterGetting Started
We have fully transitioned to the method of feedback described below. While you can of course discuss new and desired features right here in the online Community, in order to get your vote counted and officially surface your idea to our product team, please follow the instructions below. We are in the process of migrating all old Discourse feature requests to the new portal. When that’s done, we’ll have an archive of old FR’s here in the community.Your Feedback Is Important To UsWe know that every company says your feedback is important to them, but it’s hard to think of a major advance that we’ve made at Looker that wasn’t directly tied to customer feedback.Customers told us they needed better-looking, faster dashboards, so we rebuilt our dashboard infrastructure from the ground up. Customers were coming up with amazing workarounds to use scheduled data delivery for alerts, so we built native alerts into Looker. Customers started embedding Looker in other environments, so we develop

I have one API : [GET] http:localhost:8080/myservice/fetchdetails. Now, I want to raise splunk alert whenever this API is down for any reason.So, I have my search query as |eval ['http:localhost:8080/myservice/fetchdetails'] | search status=20* to monitor the API.But it is not fetching me any result.

Currently, the company I work for are reluctant to hand out looker explorer licenses to multiple people because it ‘slows looker down’. How many looker explorer memberships can a company have for it not to slow down looker? Is this true/has anyone ever heard of this being an issue?

I see that at the end of March, the LookML Developer certification exam is being retired, leaving the Looker community with no possible certification to achieve. Is there a reason for this exam (and the analyst one) being retired? Is there going to be a new exam to replace the LookML Developer? If so, when?
How do I average a daily count over week or month in looker where I need to join the data with other tables
I am new to Looker.I have a table with a count of distinct values grouped by day.I’ve imported into Looker as a view and I want to average the daily count over a month, but all I’ve come up with so far is the total count over a month. SELECT Date(checkinTime), count(DISTINCT id) AS distinct_ids_count Group by Date(checkinTime)I can’t use this because if I add the id then I have to group by it, at which point the count is 1, repeated over and over. But without the id column itself, I can’t join to the other tables where it’s a foreign key, so then the data becomes useless.Is there a looker solution to a daily value averaged over longer periods of time?
Hi, I am looking to obtain a looker demo account to play around with for the start up I am working for. I have taken the developer class, and want to begin using our own data to create an Admin Platform. I have requested a demo account, however I have not heard back from Looker. Any ideas on how I can get into contact with someone? Thank you!
