Getting started with users

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Configure advanced authentication options

By default, the Looker application authenticates users with an email address and password, but you may also use SAML (including Okta), LDAP, Google Authentication, or OpenID Connect. For enhanced security you can also enable two-factor authentication.

Set up user permissions

If you need to, Looker lets you create roles to manage which users have access to features and data. As your organization expands its Looker usage you can expand these permissioning features as appropriate. When you start with Looker, the default options may be sufficient.

See the Roles documentation page for more info.

Invite Looker users

Click Admin > Users to open the Users page. Click Add Users to create new users and assign their roles. You'll find more information on the Users documentation page.
