Access denied downloading dashboard


I granted access for dashboard for a specific user but when he’s trying downloading report, it fails with error "access denied".

I know that he can display dashboard on looker platform but not downloading it.


Thanks for your help.

Hi LudovicHamard


Could you share with us which permissions are set for the user that is trying to download the file? Perhaps “save_content” ,  download_with_limit and/or download_without_limit permissions are missing  , please take a look at  Looker- Permissions list





Hello @leobardor 


here’s permissions set for this user with “Viewer” role


access_data, clear_cache_refresh, download_without_limit, mobile_app_access, schedule_look_emails, see_drill_overlay, see_lookml_dashboards, see_looks, see_user_dashboards, send_outgoing_webhook, send_to_integration

Hi LudoVicHamard.


Could you try adding “save_content” ,  download_with_limit and/or download_without_limit

  (just for testing)?
