Is there a Liquid parameter for the current Looker instance hostname URL?

There is not. This is a feature request: Grab current page URL with liquid.


If you have several different instances but just wants to use a single liquid variable, then you can achieve this with a clever application of User Attributes.

  1. On each instance, create a User Attribute called "hostname".
  2. Set the default value of "hostname" to the hostname URL. This will differ per instance, of course.
  3. In your LookML, reference {{ _user_attributes['hostname'] }} to get the hostname URL!
