Getting Started

There are three steps to get started using Looker with Secoda:

  1. Retrieve your Looker Client ID and Client Secret

  2. Retrieve your Looker host

  3. Connect Looker to Secoda

Retrieve you Looker Client ID and Client Secret

Create API3 credentials on the Users page in the Admin section of your Looker instance. If you’re not a Looker admin, ask your Looker admin to create the API3 credentials for you.

To create an API3 credential, click Edit on a user and then under API3 Keys click Edit Keys.

Create a key, and then save the Client ID and Client Secret

Retrieve your host

Your host is the url of your Looker instance including the port. For example if your site is: https://company.cloud.looker.com the host is https://company.cloud.looker.com:443

Sometimes an admin will have specified a custom API url. If that's the case, reach out to your admin and ask them to provide that url.

Connect Looker to Secoda

After retrieving your Looker Client ID, Client Secret, and host , the next step is to connect to Secoda:

  1. In the Secoda App, select Add Integration on the Integrations tab

  2. Search for and select Looker

  3. Enter your Looker Client ID, Client Secret, and host you retrieved above

  4. Click 'Connect'
