The Actions page in the Platform section of the Admin menu lets you enable services that are integrated with Looker. If you are looking for information on how to build and test actions to request to add to the Looker Action Hub or to add to your own private action hub server, see the Sharing Data Through an Action Hub documentation page.
To use Looker integrations, the Looker Action Hub must be able to communicate with the Looker instance and fulfill these requirements. Admins of customer-hosted instances may need to consider additional factors when choosing to enable Looker integrations from the Looker Action Hub, especially integrations that support streamed results or that use OAuth.

First perform any setup steps required on the integrated service. Then enable the integration in Looker, specifying any required information for that service.
To enable an integration:
In the Admin panel’s Platform section, click Actions.
Find the service you want to enable, and click the Enable button to the right of the service:
Looker then displays the enablement page for the selected service:
Turn on the Enabled switch.
Enter the required information. You should be able to gather this information from your account with the service.
