Looker with Digital Signage Applications?

We are looking for anyone who has used Looker successfully with digital signage applications. Our support center a few dashboards which show various internal metrics. When scheduling URLs in our digital signage platform, they don’t play since the remote playback device is not authenticating with valid credentials. We just get the login screen.

Is there a method for passing the user credentials in the URL string? Any way to auto-login?

Hi Jeremy,

We don’t currently have a way to pass in user credentials via a URL. A way to bypass the login requirements would be to pass in an embed url instead. This feature is something that you’d need to discuss with your account team.

Let me know if there is anything I can clarify!



check out UCView Digital Signage. here is the blog entry

Hi! – check out our solution. It lets you securely publish company dashboards. And it’s a tight integration too: you can select dashboards from a list right in the CMS.


I was one of the devs from Fugo Team implementing it so I’m opened to questions & suggestions :heart_eyes:

Also, thank you, Looker Team – for the help and collaboration!
