Import Dashboard from LookML

Version 4.0.23.20

Creates a dashboard object based on LookML Dashboard YAML, and returns the details of the newly created dashboard.

If a dashboard exists with the YAML-defined "preferred_slug", the new dashboard will overwrite it. Otherwise, a new dashboard will be created. Note that when a dashboard is overwritten, alerts will not be maintained.

If a folder_id is specified: new dashboards will be placed in that folder, and overwritten dashboards will be moved to it If the folder_id isn't specified: new dashboards will be placed in the caller's personal folder, and overwritten dashboards will remain where they were

LookML must contain valid LookML YAML code. It's recommended to use the LookML format returned from dashboard_lookml() as the input LookML (newlines replaced with ).

Note that the created dashboard is not linked to any LookML Dashboard, i.e. sync_lookml_dashboard() will not update dashboards created by this method.

vis_config
object
Visualization configuration properties. These properties are typically opaque and differ based on the type of visualization used. There is no specified set of allowed keys. The values can be any type supported by JSON. A "type" key with a string value is often present, and is used by Looker to determine which visualization to present. Visualizations ignore unknown vis_config properties.
filter_config
object
The filter_config represents the state of the filter UI on the explore page for a given query. When running a query via the Looker UI, this parameter takes precedence over "filters". When creating a query or modifying an existing query, "filter_config" should be set to null. Setting it to any other value could cause unexpected filtering behavior. The format should be considered opaque.
