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 so that Looker can connect to your database securely. You can also decide how users will login to your instance:
- Enable Secure Database Access
- Configure Your Database for Looker
- Connect Looker to Your Database
- Configure Looker Sign-in Options
