There is a feature that allows us to format the explore results in different data formats. The way to do so is by placing the format with a period directly before the ? in the url. An example of this is as follows:

https://instance.looker.com/explore/ecommerce/orders.json?qid=6RtsysyjzbLagLEUC0V2fM

 

Notice the .json right after orders, which is the explore name. The formats that you may use are anything you can use in downloads.

  • csv
  • json
  • html
  • txt
  • md

Important note: This is only for /explore/ endpoints. The /looks endpoint has a different backend and does not support this functionality.
