Looker specific reserved words


Userlevel 4

Last tested: May 27, 2020

 

Scenario:

We run the LookML validator and see a this error:

a dimension/measure named 'yes' or 'no' or a reserved keyword

 

Reasoning:

Reserved words are words that programs have explicitly state to have fixed meaning and can't be redefined. In this case, Looker has reserved the words yes and no, therefore when defining them as dimensions, you'll get this validation error.
