Definition

In cases where you’ve used the group_label parameter to combine fields into custom groups in a view’s field picker, you can also use the group_item_label parameter for each of the grouped fields to customize how the individual fields are shown in the field picker.

For example, you can add the group_label to a set of fields like this:

view: accounts { dimension: shipping_city { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_city ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" } dimension: shipping_state { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_state ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" } dimension: shipping_street { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_street ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" } }

These fields will now be combined into an expandable Shipping Info section in the field picker:

But since these fields are shown under the expandable Shipping Info section, they don’t need to have “Shipping” in their individual labels as well. So you can add the group_item_label parameter to each of the grouped fields:

view: accounts { dimension: shipping_city { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_city ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" group_item_label: "City" } dimension: shipping_state { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_state ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" group_item_label: "State" } dimension: shipping_street { sql: ${TABLE}.shipping_street ;; group_label: "Shipping Info" group_item_label: "Street" } }

Now the fields are displayed like this in the field picker:

The group_item_label is displayed only in the field picker. In the Data section of an Explore and in any visualizations, Looker displays the field’s name or label as normal.
