Looker offers the ability to copy a LookML dashboard into a Space as a user-defined dashboard. A user-defined dashboard is edited through the user interface instead of through LookML. The ability to edit the new user-defined dashboard depends on the user’s access settings for the Space. See Building Dashboards for more information.
You can import one or more LookML dashboards into a Space as a user-defined dashboard via the Import button in the LookML Dashboards Space:
- Click Browse.
- Select the LookML Dashboards Space.
- Select one or more dashboards to import to user-defined dashboards.
- Click Import.
- In the Import window, navigate to the Space for the new user-defined dashboard(s).
- Click OK.
