local_dependency

Usage

local_dependency: {
  project: "other_project"
}

Hierarchy

local_dependency
project

Default Value

None

Accepts

  • A project subparameter, which accepts a string specifying the name of another project that has files that you want to include

Definition

To use this parameter, the experimental Labs feature Local Project Import must be enabled. Experimental features are not fully developed and may be significantly changed or completely removed.

local_dependency specifies the name of another LookML project that has files that you want to use in this project. When importing files from another project, you must create a manifest file and use the local_dependency parameter to specify a project from which to import files. You can include multiple local_dependency statements in the manifest file to import multiple files or to import from multiple projects.

After you have added local_dependency parameters to specify other projects, use the include parameter to add individual files.

Example

In a manifest file, add the projects “IMPORTED_PROJECT_1” and “IMPORTED_PROJECT_2” as sources to import files from:

project_name: "thelook" local_dependency: { project: "IMPORTED_PROJECT_1" } local_dependency: { project: "IMPORTED_PROJECT_2" }
