Hello All


Would anyone be able to share (in a really simplistic manner) the secret of setting up Postman and Looker?


I get the error below:


"message": "Requires authentication.",

"documentation_url": "http://docs.looker.com/"


Looking at the documentation, i think I need to generate a Bearer token but I am not sure what syntax to use in Postman

To Login in:

POST


    https://<<instance_name>>.looker.com:19999/api/3.1/login?client_id=<<client_id>>&client_secret=<<client_secret>>

Example:


Then paste this into the “Test” to store your temporary auth token into your global variable to use when using other APIs requests to looker


Example:

then set your auth settings on your API requests:



Hope this helps! 😀
