Description

This plugin loads the records from a Looker saved query (also called a Look) into a Dataiku DSS dataset by querying the Looker API.

Looker query result sets are read-only. This plugin does not offer the option to write-back to Looker, we encourage you to write to an underlying database Looker has access to.

The plugin can be installed from the Plugin Store or via the zip download (see above).
