Latest Release Note Highlights 🎉

21.18-  Release Highlights, Changelog, Breaking Changes

  • URL Links in Boards. The new URL Links in Boards Labs feature allows editors of boards to add URL links to a board alongside Looks and dashboards. Links to Looker content will open in the same browser tab; links to content outside Looker will open in a separate browser tab.

  • Revert to legacy dashboards. The Revert to Legacy Dashboards legacy feature has been extended. Users will continue to have the option to revert a dashboard to the legacy dashboard experience until Looker 22.0 (January 2022).

  • Developer permission set updates. The permissions in the default Developer permission set now include the see_pdts permission for new Looker instances created on Looker 21.18 and later. The permission grants access to monitoring resources for a Looker instance’s persistent derived tables, such as the Persistent Derived Tables admin page and visibility of persistent derived tables in the Looker IDE when in Development Mode.
