Looker API - Updating/Creating Merge Query

  • 23 June 2022

I am currently writing a python script to make content edits via the Looker API.

My final piece is updating the filters/custom fields for a merge query. I think the path forward is to:

  1. Update the two corresponding queries (sdk.create_query())
  2. Create a new merged query (sdk.create_merge_query()) with the updated queries
  3. Update the dashboard element (sdk.update_dashboard_element()).

However, I am struggling creating a new merge query. What would this command look like and what are the required inputs? The Looker API documentation and online resources are sparse.

Additionally, has anyone successfully updated a merged query dashboard element before? Any advice would be welcomed!
