Basic parameters

When defining a LookML dashboard element, you must specify values for at least the name and type basic parameters. Other basic parameters, such as title, height, and width, affect the appearance and position of an element on a dashboard.

name

This section refers to the name parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

name can also be used as part of a dashboard filter, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

Each name declaration creates a new dashboard element and assigns it a name. Element names must be unique. Names are sometimes referenced in the elements parameter when you're using layout: grid dashboards.

- name: orders_by_date

title

This section refers to the title parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

title can also be used as part of a dashboard, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

title can also be used as part of a dashboard filter, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

The title parameter allows you to change how an element's name will appear to users. If unspecified, the title defaults to the element name.

Consider this example:

- name: sales_overview title: '1) Sales Overview'

If you used this format, instead of the element appearing as Sales Overview, it would appear as 1) Sales Overview.

type

This section refers to the type parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

type can also be used as part of a dashboard filter, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

type can also be used as part of a join, described on the type (for joins) parameter documentation page.

type can also be used as part of a dimension, described on the Dimension, filter, and parameter types documentation page.

type can also be used as part of a measure, described on the Measure types documentation page.

The type parameter determines the type of visualization to be used in the element.

- name: element_name type: text | looker_grid | table | single_value | looker_single_record | looker_column | looker_bar | looker_scatter | looker_line | looker_area | looker_pie | looker_donut_multiples | looker_funnel | looker_timeline | looker_map | looker_geo_coordinates | looker_geo_choropleth | looker_waterfall | looker_wordcloud | looker_boxplot

See the type (for LookML dashboards) documentation page for an overview of the different types of LookML dashboard elements.

height

This section refers to the height parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

height can also be used as part of a dashboard row, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

The height parameter defines the height of an element, in units of tile_size, for layout: tile and layout: static dashboards.

For example, the code below specifies tile_size: 100 and height: 4, making the orders_by_date element 400 pixels in height.

- dashboard: sales_overview tile_size: 100 ... elements: - name: orders_by_date height: 4 ...

The height parameter defines the height of an element, in units of rows, for layout: newspaper dashboards.

Each row is 50 pixels tall. A dashboard with newspaper layout defaults to an element height of 6 rows, or 300 pixels.

For example, the code below sets an element to be 600 pixels tall, or twice as tall as other elements that are set to the default:

- dashboard: sales_overview layout: newspaper ... elements: - name: orders_by_date height: 12 ...

width

This section refers to the width parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

width can also be used as part of a dashboard, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

The width parameter defines the width of an element, in units of tile_size, for layout: tile and layout: static dashboards.

For example, the code below specifies tile_size: 100 and width: 4, making the orders_by_date element 400 pixels in width.

- dashboard: sales_overview tile_size: 100 ... elements: - name: orders_by_date width: 4 ...

The width parameter defines the width of an element, in units of columns, for layout: newspaper dashboards.

A dashboard with newspaper layout defaults to a width of 24 columns.

For example, the code below sets the element to half the width of the dashboard:

- dashboard: sales_overview layout: newspaper ... elements: - name: orders_by_date width: 12 ...

top

The top parameter defines the top-to-bottom position of an element, in units of tile_size, for layout: static dashboards.

For example, the code below specifies tile_size: 100 and top: 4, positioning the top edge of the orders_by_date element 400 pixels from the top of the dashboard.

- dashboard: sales_overview tile_size: 100 ... elements: - name: orders_by_date top: 4 ...

left

The left parameter defines the left-to-right position of an element, in units of tile_size, for layout: static dashboards.

For example, the code below specifies tile_size: 100 and left: 4, positioning the left edge of the orders_by_date element 400 pixels from the left side of the dashboard.

- dashboard: sales_overview tile_size: 100 ... elements: - name: orders_by_date left: 4 ...

row

For layout: newspaper dashboards, the row parameter defines the row that the top edge of an element is placed on.

A dashboard begins with row 0 at the top of the dashboard. A dashboard with newspaper layout defaults to an element height of 6 rows, meaning the dashboard elements at the top of a dashboard (row: 0) would default to taking up rows 0-5.

Each row is 50 pixels tall, which means the default element height of 6 rows is 300 pixels.

For example, the code below sets an element to be set on the second row of elements in the dashboard, assuming elements are set at the default height:

- dashboard: sales_overview layout: newspaper ... elements: - name: orders_by_date row: 6 ...

col

For layout: newspaper dashboards, the col parameter defines the column that the left edge of the element is placed on.

Dashboards are divided into 24 columns. A dashboard begins with column 0 at the left of the dashboard. A dashboard with newspaper layout defaults to an element width of 8 columns, meaning the dashboard elements at the left of a dashboard (col: 0) would default to taking up columns 0-7.

For example, the code below sets an element to be set in the third column of elements in the dashboard:

- dashboard: sales_overview layout: newspaper ... elements: - name: orders_by_date col: 16 ...

refresh

This section refers to the refresh parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

refresh can also be used as part of a dashboard, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

The refresh parameter allows an element to reload automatically on some periodic basis, thereby retrieving fresh data. This is often helpful in settings where a dashboard is constantly displayed, such as on an office TV. Note that the dashboard must be open in a browser window for this parameter to have an effect. This setting does not run in the background to "pre-warm" the dashboard cache.

The refresh rate can be any number (without decimals) of seconds, minutes, hours, or days. For example:

- name: orders_by_date refresh: 2 hours

Use caution when setting short refresh intervals. If the query behind the element is resource-intensive, certain elements may strain your database more than desired.

note

You can add descriptive notes to elements like this:

- name: element_name note: text: 'note text' state: collapsed | expanded display: above | below | hover

note has the subparameters text, state, and display.

text

The text subparameter specifies the text displayed in the note. The text can be localized.

state

The state subparameter determines whether the note will be collapsed or expanded if it is too big to fit on a single row within the element's width. If you choose collapsed and the note is too long, the note will end in a clickable ellipsis (...) that can be used to read the full note.

display

The display subparameter determines where the note is displayed on an element. above places the note at the top of an element, below places it at the bottom of an element, and hover requires the user to hover their mouse over the element to see the note.

Query parameters

When defining a LookML dashboard element, you must specify values for at least the model and explore query parameters.

For LookML dashboard elements of type: looker_map, you must also specify at least one geographic field as the value of either the dimensions or the fields parameter. A geographic field can be one of the following:

You can also use the other query parameters described below to control the way data is displayed in a dashboard element. For more information on the requirements for building an interactive map chart with the Looker UI, see the Building an interactive map chart section of the Map chart options documentation page.

model

The model parameter defines the model to use for the element query. If unspecified, it will default to the model where the dashboard resides.

- name: orders_by_date model: ecommerce

The model parameter accepts LookML constants. You can define a constant in the manifest file for your project, then use the syntax "@{constant_name}" to set the constant as the value for model. Using a constant allows you to define the name of a model in one place, which is particularly useful if you're updating the name of a model that is used by multiple dashboard elements.

For more information and an example of using constants with LookML dashboards, see the constant parameter documentation page.

explore

This section refers to the explore parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

explore can also be used as part of a model, described on the explore parameter documentation page.

explore can also be used as part of a dashboard filter, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

The explore parameter defines the Explore to use for the element query.

- name: orders_by_date explore: order

The explore parameter accepts LookML constants. You can define a constant in the manifest file for your project, then use the syntax "@{constant_name}" to set the constant as the value for explore. Using a constant allows you to define the name of an Explore in one place, which is particularly useful if you're updating the name of an Explore that is used by multiple dashboard elements.

For more information and an example of using constants with LookML dashboards, see the constant parameter documentation page.

fields

The fields parameter defines the fields to use for the element query. Use the syntax view_name.dimension_name to specify the fields.

# single field example - name: orders_by_date fields: order.order_date # multiple fields example - name: orders_by_date fields: [order.order_date, order.order_count]

If you use the fields parameter, you do not need to use the dimensions and measures parameters.

dimensions

The dimensions parameter defines the dimension or dimensions to use for the element query. Use the syntax view_name.dimension_name to specify the dimension. Don't include dimensions if the query doesn't have any.

# single dimension example - name: orders_by_date dimensions: order.order_date # multiple dimension example - name: orders_by_date dimensions: [order.order_date, customer.name]

measures

The measures parameter defines the measure or measures to use for the element query. Use the syntax view_name.measure_name to specify the measure. Don't include measures if the query doesn't have any.

# single measure example - name: orders_by_date measures: order.count # multiple measure example - name: orders_by_date measures: [order.count, order_item.count]

sorts

The sorts parameter defines the sorts to be used for the element query. The primary sort is listed first, then the secondary sort, and so on. Use the syntax view_name.field_name to specify the dimension or measure. Don't include sorts if you want to use Looker's default sort order. Descending sorts are suffixed with desc; ascending sorts don't need a suffix.

# single sort example - name: orders_by_date sorts: order.order_date desc # multiple sort example - name: orders_by_date sorts: [order.order_date desc, customer.name]

pivots

The pivots parameter defines the dimensions that should be pivoted for the element query. Use the syntax view_name.dimension_name to specify the dimension. Don't include pivots if the query doesn't have any.

# single pivot example - name: orders_by_date pivots: customer.gender # multiple pivot example - name: orders_by_date pivots: [customer.gender, customer.age_tier]

limit

The limit parameter defines the row limit that should be used for the element query. The limit applies to the number of rows before any pivots are applied.

- name: orders_by_date limit: 100

column_limit

The column_limit parameter defines the column limit that should be used for the element query. The limit applies to the number of columns after any pivots are applied.

- name: orders_by_date column_limit: 100

filters

This section refers to the filters parameter that is part of a dashboard element.

filters can also be used as part of a dashboard, described on the Dashboard parameters documentation page.

filters can also be used as part of a measure, described on the filters parameter documentation page.

The filters parameter defines the non-changeable filters that should be used for the element's query. If you would like filters that a user can change in the dashboard, you should set up the filters using filters for dashboards, then apply them to the elements using listen.

The syntax for filters is:

- name: element_name filters: orders.created_date: 2020/01/10 for 3 days orders.status: Shipped # You can create multiple filter statements

Each filter can accept a Looker filter expression or a value constant. You can also use the _localization or _user_attributes Liquid variables in the filter expression for flexible filter values.

listen

Dashboards can have filters that allow users to change the data behind dashboard elements. These are set up by using the filters for dashboards parameter. For a filter to impact an element, the element must be set up to "listen" for that filter, using the listen parameter.

The syntax for listen is:

- name: element_name listen: filter_name_goes_here: dimension or measure on which to apply the filter using view_name.field_name syntax # You can add more than one listen statement

For example, you might create a filter called Date that requires a user to enter a date into the filter field in the UI. You could then apply the value that the user enters to the orders_by_date element like this:

- dashboard: sales_overview ... filters: - name: date type: date_filter elements: - name: orders_by_date listen: date: order.order_date ...

This concept is described in more detail on the Building LookML dashboards documentation page.

query_timezone

The query_timezone parameter specifies the time zone in which the query will be run. The time zone options are shown on the Values for timezone documentation page. If you want the query to run using the viewer's time zone, you can assign the value as user_timezone.

- name: orders_by_date query_timezone: America/Los Angeles
- name: orders_by_customer query_timezone: user_timezone

Plot parameters

The parameters described in this section correspond to the options in the Plot section of the visualization editor for map charts.

The parameters you can use with an element of type: looker_map depend on whether your query includes a dimension of type: location or has a map layer associated with it.

map_plot_mode

The map_plot_mode parameter defines the way your data is plotted on a type: looker_map element that is based on a dimension of type: location. This parameter is not available for maps based on a dimension with an associated map layer or for zip code dimensions. The map_plot_mode parameter accepts the following values:

points

Setting map_plot_mode to points plots each row in the underlying data table as a discrete point on the map.

A dimension of type: location on its own places points of uniform size and color on the map. Adding a measure to the query enables the points to be scaled by color or size using the map_marker_radius_mode and map_marker_color_mode parameters.

automagic_heatmap

Setting map_plot_mode to automagic_heatmap displays the data in the underlying query as a heatmap grid. It works by dividing the visible map into equal squares and then calculating which values in your data fit into each square. The squares are colored according to a measure that you choose. Zooming this map in or out will prompt Looker to re-calculate the grid, so that the granularity is appropriate to the zoom level.

Your query must include both a dimension of type: location and a measure for this plot type to work correctly.

lines

Setting map_plot_mode to lines takes two dimensions of type: location from your query and connects them together in the visualization. Adding a measure to your query enables you to add color scale to the lines.

areas

Setting map_plot_mode to areas takes one dimension of type: location and connects all the points in the order you’ve sorted them. This forms boundaries of an area on the map element. Adding a measure to the query enables you to format the size and color of the individual location points that make up the boundaries of the area.

heatmap_gridlines

For heatmap elements, setting heatmap_gridlines to true adds a border around each of the gridlines used for the heatmap. This parameter is available when you’re plotting a dimension of type: location with map_plot_mode set to automagic_heatmap, or when you’re plotting a zip code dimension or a dimension with an associated map layer.

heatmap_gridlines: true | false

heatmap_gridlines_empty

When heatmap_gridlines is set to true for heatmap elements, setting heatmap_gridlines_empty to true displays an outline around the map regions that have no associated data.

heatmap_gridlines_empty: true | false

heatmap_opacity

For heatmap elements, you can use heatmap_opacity to specify the opacity of the colors used in the heatmap. Specify a number between 0 and 1 as the value for heatmap_opacity, where 0 means no color and 1 means totally opaque.

heatmap_opacity: 0.5

Map parameters

Most of the parameters described in this section correspond to the options in the Map section of the visualization editor for column charts.

map_tile_provider

Available for all maps, the map_tile_provider parameter allows you to change the type of background map and specify whether map labels (like cities and streets) are displayed.

map_tile_provider: light | light_no_labels | dark | dark_no_labels | satellite_streets | satellite | streets | outdoors | traffic_day | traffic_night

map_position

You can use the map_position parameter to set the center point and zoom level of the visible map. There are two options for specifying this position:

map_position: fit_data | custom

map_latitude

The map_latitude parameter specifies the latitude for a map element with map_position set to custom.

map_latitude: -5.804047131379801

map_longitude

The map_longitude parameter specifies the longitude for a map element with map_position set to custom.

map_longitude: 113.34732055664064

map_zoom

The map_zoom parameter allows you to specify the zoom level for a map element with map_position set to custom. Higher numbers create a closer zoom level.

map_zoom: 10

map_scale_indicator

Set to 'off' by default, the map_scale_indicator parameter allows you to specify whether a map scale is shown and set the types of units that are displayed.

map_scale_indicator: 'off' | metric | imperial | metric_imperial

map_pannable

The map_pannable parameter specifies whether users can reposition the map by dragging it. This option is enabled by default.

map_pannable: true | false

map_zoomable

The map_zoomable parameter specifies whether users can zoom in and out of the map element. This option is enabled by default.

map_zoomable: true | false

show_view_names

The show_view_names parameter specifies whether to show the view name along with the field name in map tooltips, which are displayed when users click on map data points.

show_view_names: true | false

show_legend

Specify whether a map legend should be displayed in the lower right of the visualization. The legend shows the color scale you are using, if you’ve added a measure to your visualization.

The show_legend parameter is available when the following plot options have been specified:

show_legend: true | false

show_region_field

For maps based on a map layer or zip code, the show_region_field parameter displays the information in the tooltip of the map. Users can click on a point on the map to see the name of the region.

show_region_field: true | false

draw_map_labels_above_data

For map layer maps or maps based on a zip code dimension, you can use the draw_map_labels_above_data parameter to display the map’s labels above or below the heatmap. This is especially significant with higher heatmap opacity values. If your heatmap is opaque, the labels will not show unless they are displayed above the data.

draw_map_labels_above_data: true | false

Point parameters

Point options are not available for maps with map_plot_mode set to automagic_heatmap.

map_marker_type

For maps based on a location dimension and with map_plot_mode set to points, lines, or areas, the map_marker_type parameter defines the type of point displayed on the map element. The map_marker_type parameter accepts the following values:

The value you specify for map_marker_type impacts the parameters that are available for formatting the points displayed on the map.

map_marker_icon_name

If map_marker_type is set to icon or circle_and_icon, you can use the map_marker_icon_name parameter to set the type of icon to display on all map markers.

map_marker_icon_name: default | airplane | ambulance | anchor | beaker | bell | bolt | briefcase | building | camera | car | checkmark | coffee | comment | envelope | file | gamepad | gavel | gift | glass | headphones | heart | house | key | leaf | microphone | music | person | phone | restaurant | school | shopping_cart | star | suitcase | taxi | tree | trophy | truck | university | wrench

map_marker_radius_mode

For maps with map_marker_type set to circle or circle_and_icon, you can use the map_marker_radius_mode parameter to set the sizes of the circles according to the following options:

map_marker_radius_mode: proportional_value | equal_to_value | fixed

map_marker_radius_fixed

When map_marker_radius_mode is set to fixed and map_marker_type is set to circle or circle_and_icon, you can use the map_marker_radius_fixed parameter to set a fixed radius that applies to all map markers.

map_marker_type: circle map_marker_radius_mode: fixed map_marker_radius_fixed: 60

map_marker_radius_min

For maps with map_marker_type set to circle or circle_and_icon and map_marker_radius_mode set to proportional_value, you can use the map_marker_radius_min parameter to define the minimum radius for a circle.

map_marker_type: circle map_marker_radius_mode: proportional_value map_marker_radius_min: 5

map_marker_radius_max

For maps with map_marker_type set to circle or circle_and_icon and map_marker_radius_mode set to proportional_value, you can use the map_marker_radius_max parameter to define the maximum radius for a circle.

map_marker_type: circle map_marker_radius_mode: proportional_value map_marker_radius_max: 50

map_marker_proportional_scale_type

For maps with map_marker_type set to circle or circle_and_icon and map_marker_radius_mode set to proportional_value, you can use the map_marker_proportional_scale_type parameter to set the circle size to be based on either a linear or a logarithmic scale. This parameter’s value can be either linear or log.

map_marker_radius_mode: proportional_value map_marker_proportional_scale_type: linear | log

map_marker_units

For maps with map_marker_type set to circle or circle_and_icon, you can use the map_marker_units parameter to set the units used for the radius of a circle to meters or pixels.

map_marker_units: meters | pixels

map_marker_color_mode

You can use the map_marker_color_mode to set the colors of the map markers:

map_marker_color

When map_marker_color_mode is set to fixed, set a single color to use for all map markers.

map_marker_color: [mediumblue]

Value parameters

You can use these parameters to configure the colors that will be dynamically assigned to markers based on the values of your underlying query when map_marker_color_mode is set to value, or for map elements with map_plot_mode set to automagic_heatmap, lines, or areas.

map_value_colors

You can use the map_value_colors parameter to set the color of map points or, if you are color coding according to a measure, to define the range of colors to be used. You can input a list of hex strings, such as #2ca6cd, or CSS color names, such as mediumblue. The colors you list first are associated with the lowest values.

map_value_colors: [green, mediumblue]

quantize_map_value_colors

When set to true, quantize_map_value_colors changes the color scale from a smooth gradient to only the specific colors you have set. This parameter is set to false by default.

quantize_map_value_colors: true | false

reverse_map_value_colors

When set to true, the reverse_map_value_colors parameter switches the colors that indicate high and low values on the chart, reversing the color gradient.

reverse_map_value_colors: true | false

map_value_scale_clamp_min

You can use the map_value_scale_clamp_min parameter to set the minimum value for the color range. This enables you to color code all points below a certain threshold (the number specified) with the lowest color specified with the map_value_colors parameter. By default, the minimum value applied on the legend is the minimum value from your query.

map_value_scale_clamp_min: 1000

map_value_scale_clamp_max

You can use the map_value_scale_clamp_max parameter to set the maximum value for the color range, which enables you to color code all points above the number specified with the highest color specified with the map_value_colors parameter. By default, the maximum value applied on the legend is the maximum value from your query.

map_value_scale_clamp_max: 50000
