Can Looker import descriptions from Snowflake?


I’m using dbt to push descriptions to Snowflake using the persist docs functionality. I am now wondering if Looker can import the Snowflake descriptions into a view/model that I create from a database.

Adding to this, I would like the desired interaction to be something like:

 

For LookML column Descriptions, use snowflake column comments by default unless LookML description is blank or not defined.

Yes, that would be a great feature!
