Set up Looker integration and get all the insights in Torii's dashboard

Overview

Torii integrates with your Looker account and syncs:

  • Users: list, roles, status, last login dates

  • Licenses - Viewer, Standard, and Developer
    Click here to see how Torii maps Looker roles to licenses.

Note, Torii can support multiple accounts

Prerequisites

To connect Torii to Looker you will be required to get the following from Looker:

  1. API URL - Get your API URL using the Admin settings page.

  2. Client ID & 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. The API3 credentials that you generated includes both.

    API3 credentials are always bound to a Looker user account. API requests execute “as” the user associated with the API3 credentials. Calls to the API will only return data that the user is allowed to see, and modify only what the user is allowed to modify.

How do Torii maps Looker roles to licenses?

  • Developer (Admin) -  If the user’s role includes the words “Admin” or “develop” 
  • Standard (Creator) - If the roles’ permission includes “explore”, “use_sql_runner” or “save_content” 
  • Viewer - If the roles’ permission includes “access_data”
  • No license - If none of the above is matched
