Potentially breaking changes

Check out these potentially breaking changes! Depending on which features or configurations you have implemented, all, some, or none of these changes may apply to your instance.
  • PrestoSQL and Trino now default to set SSLVerification=NONE (if Verify SSL is not set) or set SSLVerification=FULL (if Verify SSL is set). If you set your own value for SSLVerification, that value will be used.
  • Support access is disabled by default for all instances. Customers must use an allowlist to grant specific people access to their instance.
  • The following JDBC drivers have been updated: Firebolt (v.1.21), Microsoft SQL Server (v.9.4), Databricks Spark (v.2.6.21.1039), and Amazon Athena (v.2.0.25.1001).
  • Popular fields are no longer displayed in the field picker search bar. Admins can enable the legacy feature to restore the Popular Fields drop-down to Explore searches. The legacy feature will be removed starting in Looker 22.20.
  • A new legacy feature, Allow double click to select text in textarea in Table Visualizations, allows users to double-click on table cell values to manually select text. The legacy feature will be removed starting in Looker 22.20.
  • A new legacy feature, Save as look keyboard shortcut, allows users to save as Looks by using a keyboard shortcut. The legacy feature will be removed starting in Looker 22.14.

Dashboards updates

The Looker default dashboard experience has been improved.
  • A new save flow is available from the Explore page, which allows users to include filters that are on the first query they save to a dashboard as dashboard filters.
  • Dashboard creators can now create dashboard filters on fields from Explores not present on the dashboard by toggling the Advanced option in the filter creation flow.

PDTs “at a glance”

A new Admin page section lets you quickly view key PDT monitoring information.
  • A new At a glance section on the PDT Admin page provides key PDT monitoring information in a condensed format.

Labs features updates

We’ve introduced a new Labs feature and updated some existing Labs features.
  • An admin user can enable the Enhanced Action Hub Service Labs feature to improve reliability and performance of the Looker Action Hub.
