Directory/folder added via the command line not showing up in UI?


Last tested: Sep 29, 2020
 

The UI will hide empty folders or folders that contain only extension-less files. To get the directory to show up in the UI, we can create a file in the directory/folder and add a .txt extension.

Please note that we should generally avoid making changes via the command line. Looker doesn't use pure Git, it also uses JGit to invoke Git, so trying to mix the two can get very messy and cause issues down the line.

If you have a valid use case for utilizing the command line to make changes, we do have a refresh webhook that will recognize new folders created.
