Hi Chaofliu!

 

Answer: Yep

You should be able to move the lookML dashboard folder if you have the right permissions in your looker account (For instance: Admin)

 

Please check the following URL :

https://docs.looker.com/dashboards/creating-lookml-dashboards#moving_lookml_dashboards_outside_of_the_lookml_dashboards_folder

 

I suggest performing a double check to confirm the change is made in production mode.

 

This looker feature was released in 2022 , previous looker posts to this year mentions  that this feature is not available 😁 https://docs.looker.com/relnotes#organize_lookml_dashboards_in_folders

Hi Leo, thanks for the kindly reply.

two questions:

       1. could we do the moving by looker API?

  1. could we choose which folder firstly when the LookML dashboard is created? instead of move it after it is created in the LookML folder. Like I said ,  a parameter in LookML dashboard file “folder:  /dwqdddqw” will be more convienent.~
thanks~

Hi Chaofliu!

 

 

There is a beta version of the API Method (May 22) which moves “Dashboards” and “LookML dashboards”. You will need to pass the model::dashboard_name style id for the dashboard.

You can also move back to the LookML Dashboards folder by using lookML as the folder id.

URL of doc : Move Dashboard - API

 

For instance:

 

 

 

You can test this method  directly in Looker - API Explorer

 

 

Regarding the Looker UI, you should be able to move it in production mode:

 

 

 

 

Have a nice week!

Best,
