Encrypting Network Traffic

Looker strongly recommends encrypting network traffic between the Looker application and your database. Consider one of the options described on this page.

If you’re interested in using SSL encryption, see the Denodo documentation.

Configuring Denodo for Looker

Preparing Denodo for Looker requires just a couple steps:

Import a Custom Function

In order to support Symmetric Aggregates, connecting to Denodo currently requires importing a custom function. You can find our custom DT-Looker-Utils.vql function in this Community topic. Import this function using the Import option in the File menu of the Denodo Administration Tool.

Grant the Database User Appropriate Permissions

Looker will require SELECT access to any tables or databases you would like to query within Looker. Ensure the database user with which you are connecting to Looker can access these tables.

Feature Support

Looker’s ability to provide some features depends on the database dialect’s ability to support that functionality. In the current Looker release, Denodo supports the following Looker features:

Next Steps

After completing the database configuration, you can connect to the database from Looker using these directions.
