We have the looker Explore view Embedded into our application to allow Ad-Hoc analysis of data. Now we would like to expand that functionality so that users can save the explore they create as a look and view it in our product.
The issue is that we can’t use the save Dialog enabled by the “save_content” sso.permission because there is additional information about the look that the user needs to provide before we can display the look as a report in our products UI. So this creates the case where a user could create a look using the explore save and never join it to the rest of the information required to display the report creating a lot of orphaned reports.
The idea we had to solve this is to use the create_look API function to create a new report using the data from the embedded explore view.
This leads to my question, is there a way to access the JSON representing the look created by a Embedded Explore without saving it using the Looker save UI so it can be passed to the API?
