Key features

Key features

Embedded analytics for your website or application

Provide analytics capabilities within your business applications and embed interactive dashboards for internal employees or external clients.

Real-time data-driven insights

Combine data from across your business and define metrics that matter most for your stakeholders.

Secure iframe configurations

With Looker Embedded, you can empower your users and customers to explore data embedded into an iframe in any HTML-formatted web page, portal, or application. The iframe executes the whole Looker application, requesting only the data necessary to display your query. By design, an iframe is not allowed to read or write data from your external website or application.

Iframe interactivity

Enable self-service by allowing embedded users to navigate through reports, download data, set up schedules and alerts all within the embedded iframe.

Looker API for Embedded

Using Looker's API, you can enable access to embedded content via a proxy application or a reverse proxy server. In this scenario, authentication is performed via API3 keys, which are tied to a specific user and have the same permissions as the user that generates them. API3 keys are composed of a client ID and a client secret key.
