Configuring conditional alerts for Looker users

Looker has several user permissions that are associated with alerts. Some permissions determine what the user can do with alerts; others determine what destinations a user can send an alert notification to. See the Roles documentation page for more information about Looker permissions, including dependencies.

Looker user permissions are distinct from the alert setting called Permissions, which allows the alert’s creator to determine whether other users will be able to view and potentially follow the alert.

In addition to the permissions described below, users need see_looks permissions and see_user_dashboards and/or see_lookml_dashboards permissions for the models on which the dashboard or LookML dashboard tiles, respectively, are based.

Permission Allows Users To
admin See the tile’s bell icon: The numeric indicator shows the total number of enabled public alerts on the tile. The user must be signed in to Slack from Looker to see alerts that send Slack notifications. In addition to the capabilities provided by the create_alerts and follow_alerts permissions, admins can manage alerts from the Admin Setting — Manage Alerts admin page, even private alerts that are created by other users.
create_alerts See the tile’s bell icon: The numeric indicator shows the sum of any public or private alerts that the user has created and other users’ alerts that are marked Public. The user must be signed in to Slack to see alerts that send Slack notifications. Create, duplicate, and delete their own alerts; duplicate alerts marked Public by other users. View their alerts on the Manage Alerts user page.
follow_alerts View and follow public, followable alerts that are on the tile. View the alerts that they have followed or for which they are listed as a recipient from the Manage Alerts user page.
schedule_look_emails Send email notifications. Users must also have create_alerts permissions.
schedule_external_look_emails Send notifications to emails with any domain. Users must also have create_alerts permissions.
send_to_integration Send alert notifications to the Slack or Slack Attachment (API Token) integrations, if enabled for the Looker instance. Users must also have create_alerts permissions.
