Is there any way to get the group label of a dimension or measure from the API? Looked through some example code and documentation and couldn’t find anything. Thanks

Hey there!

It is possible to get the group labels of all dimensions/measures in a given explore. 
Using the API Explorer, head to LookmlModel>Get LookML Model Explore. This will utilize the lookml_model_explore() endpoint. Then specify the model, explore, and requested fields, and run the call.

In the fields parameter, you can use `fields(dimensions(name, field_group_label))` to return the field name + group label of all dimensions in the explore. Similarly you can use `fields(measures(name, field_group_label))` to return the field name + group label of all measures in the explore.

Here’s an example of what my response looks like:
