Project Manifest Parameters

Project manifest files let you import files from other projects into the current project. Use the project manifest file to list the names of any other projects you want to include files from. This page links to the project manifest-level LookML parameters.

The Project Import feature is an experimental Labs feature and must be enabled on the Labs page in the Admin section of Looker. Experimental features are not fully developed and may be significantly changed or completely removed.
