Update Project

Version 4.0.24.2 (latest)

Update Project Configuration

Apply changes to a project's configuration.

Configuring Git for a Project

To set up a Looker project with a remote git repository, follow these steps:

  1. Call update_session to select the 'dev' workspace.
  2. Call create_git_deploy_key to create a new deploy key for the project
  3. Copy the deploy key text into the remote git repository's ssh key configuration
  4. Call update_project to set project's git_remote_url ()and git_service_name, if necessary).

When you modify a project's git_remote_url, Looker connects to the remote repository to fetch metadata. The remote git repository MUST be configured with the Looker-generated deploy key for this project prior to setting the project's git_remote_url.

To set up a Looker project with a git repository residing on the Looker server (a 'bare' git repo):

  1. Call update_session to select the 'dev' workspace.
  2. Call update_project setting git_remote_url to null and git_service_name to "bare".
