Is it possible to create a new view file and then update an explore through looker API? I tried using APIv3.1 and could not find any lead.

Check out my answer here:

Short version: The Looker API doesn’t have file management endpoints, you should use your git provider to change or create files.

Hi, Is this still a valid answer (after 1 year) that using Looker APIs we will not be able to update the views dynamically?

It is @addankirao . Looker does not support editing LookML via the API, we rely on Git for all LookML file management.
