Using a Looker-hosted instance greatly reduces the effort required to install, configure and maintain the Looker application. When you choose this option, Looker provides an instance of the Looker application to you, and performs all necessary IT functions related to the Looker application.
There are still some steps you will need to take to let Looker connect securely to your database, and to configure how users will log in to your instance:
- Enable Secure Database Access
- Configure Your Database for Looker
- Connect Looker to Your Database
- Configure Looker Sign-in Options
