Set up and administer Looker

Looker gives you the option of having your instance hosted by Looker or of hosting the instance yourself. During the setup process, a Looker Sales Engineer or Professional Services consultant will help you get set up.

There are also many settings that help you administer your Looker instance. These settings include options to customize Looker for your organization, configure authentication for users and groups, control user and group access to data and Looker features, and monitor Looker usage and health.
