Hi,I'm currently working on some dashboards and reports. Users will be able to download the data, and to make this possible, I added the download_without_limit permission.The problem is that this permission enables the Download Data option for each tile and throughout the dashboard.My question is: Would it be possible to disable the per-tile download option and keep only the one at the dashboard level?
I am trying to schedule 4 different dashboards (4 accounts) with 1 account. I can see and edit all 4 dashboards from this 1 account (based on my email address) and I can set up the schedules. I can even run the send now option and dashboards appear on my SFTP server. However when I setup a time schedule only 1 out of the 4 accounts finishes succesfull and for the other 3 I receive email with error(The scheduled job "VFZ Klantenservice Export" failed for . Please visit your content to view and resolve the error, or contact your Looker administrator if you need further assistance.Error: User cannot run Dashboard 352)
Hello Team, my question is the following: does Looker have a static IP address that I can share with a customer to whitelist some of the reports that are scheduled into their sFTP server? please let me know how to set up in the affirmative case.Thanks in advance, Jorge.

I would like to remove all "Clear Cache and Refresh" options for our non-admin users. We have unchecked the clear_cache_refresh option for all of the non-admin user group’s roles. However, I can sudo as one of the users and still see the clear cache and refresh option, and am still able to clear the cache when sudoing as this non-admin user. Is this a bug? Clear cache option is unchecked:
We want to roll out the Closed system option for Content Security to manage different customers within different groups. We also would like for customers to have restricted Admin privileges to create new users within those specific groups without seeing other customers’ information or being able to change any other option within the Looker User Admin section. Is this possible? I see Permission Sets for Admin permissions like support_access_togglesupport_access_toggle, see_users, sudo, etc, but they cannot be restricted for particular Groups. Is there any future planning? Please let me know if anyone has done this through the Manage Users APIs as well. (https://docs.looker.com/reference/api-and-integration/api-reference/v4.0/user)
Estoy registrado en Youtube con un correo que no puedo acceder porque lo han crakeado. Quiero entrar al canal que tengo pero no puedo por eso mismo. He intentado restablecer el correo y no hay forma. ¿Cómo puedo hacerlo para seguir con el canal de Youtube y no esté vinculado al correo crakeado?
We are implementing a few Looker dashboards in our portal via the SSO embed.What are the pros and cons of the automatic embed user creation? Meaning, should we have one user from our portal, users per access filter attribute, or all users? We are leaning toward one user per access filter attribute (customer_id for us) and letting our portal handle access by user to that “group” (really the customer_id).Thanks!
This errors 403 & 404 are getting from LOOKER after clicking the Authenticating button & as well from 'Test SAML Authentication' button after entering the login credentials.The credentials were tried using the email address/oktaid, both didn't work as expected.Can you please provide the steps how we can figure out root cause of the issue ? Attaching the looker log file where we couldn't find any issue,"Could you please let us know what attributes core product expects to be present? We currently only have access_user_id. Is there a need for any additional attributes ?" Can anyone please suggest how we can find the root cause of the issue Thanks,Satish
Dear community, I am wondering if there is a limitation as to how many concurrent SSO embed sessions a single Looker instance can handle. My team is integrating Looker into an application hit by hundreds of users daily, potentially at the same time.
Hi all, I’ve looked but haven’t found the answer. After an embed user has been created by a Looker instance following access to an SSO embed URL, for how long is the embed user account kept in the instance? I learned embed users are temporary, but how temporary? thank you in advance!
We have a number fields that are masked using access_grants and a user variable at the model level. The fields are available when creating a look and when downloading said look to excel. However, when attempting to use the public access link for the excel web query file, the masked fields are not appearing.I wanted to ask if anyone has run into this issue before and if there is either a solution or work-around.Thanks in advance.
I have a scenario where User A and User B are in the same team(group). But user A should be able to view the explore X while User B should not be able to view the explore X. I tried using the access_grant, but it almost seems impossible. I do not want to create a new explore for another user. Is there any way I could accomplish this ? Please help!
We have a report where we need to provide downloading permission to just this one report for those with Viewer licenses.For this,1) we created a new model with just the fields we require in that report,2) created a permission set with all viewer settings and included download_with_limit and download_without_limit.3) Based on this we create a new role with the newly created model and permission.We are testing this now but we noticed that users who are viewers can download other reports based off other models as well.How can we prevent downloading permission to just this report?
Hi guys! Could anyone help me understand about Looker licensing? Today our contract had 170 users "Standard (Creator)" and 20 "Developer (Admin)", I have some questions:Are licenses classified according to what we set up in "permission sets"? (https://docs.looker.com/admin-options/settings/roles#permissions_and_dependencies); Assigning a user to a "Developer (admin)" license also counts in the "Standard (Creator)" count or are they separate accounts?; Wouldn't the viewer license type have extra costs and have an unlimited quantity?; How does billing for apis calls work?Thanks!
Hello Looker community!I'm looking at Looker from a user access management perspective. In order to (periodically) review assigned user permissions we're looking for an overview of all users and which user groups / roles / attributes are assigned. In most applications I've seen there is some build-in functionality to generate an user/permissions overview like this. Does anyone know if this is possible in Looker? Finally, is it possible to generate a log file of all changes made to users/roles/permissions/attributes etc?
Hi Community folks! I am a Looker CSM, and am looking to connect with customers using BigQuery OAuth. The feature is fairly new, and I manage a customer interested in connecting with other organizations who have experience with it. Let me know if that’s you, and if you’d be open to speaking with them about it!
