Run Scheduled Plan Once by Id

Version 4.0.24.2 (latest)

Run a Scheduled Plan By Id Immediately

This function creates a run-once schedule plan based on an existing scheduled plan, applies modifications (if any) to the new scheduled plan, and runs the new schedule plan immediately. This can be useful for testing modifications to an existing scheduled plan before committing to a production schedule.

This function internally performs the following operations:

  1. Copies the properties of the existing scheduled plan into a new scheduled plan
  2. Copies any properties passed in the JSON body of this request into the new scheduled plan (replacing the original values)
  3. Creates the new scheduled plan
  4. Runs the new scheduled plan

The original scheduled plan is not modified by this operation. Admins can create, modify, and run scheduled plans on behalf of other users by specifying a user id. Non-admins can only create, modify, and run their own scheduled plans.

Email Permissions:

For details about permissions required to schedule delivery to email and the safeguards Looker offers to protect against sending to unauthorized email destinations, see Email Domain Allow List for Scheduled Looks.

Scheduled Plan Destination Formats

Scheduled plan destinations must specify the data format to produce and send to the destination.

Formats:

format Description
json A JSON object containing a data property which contains an array of JSON objects, one per row. No metadata.
json_detail Row data plus metadata describing the fields, pivots, table calcs, and other aspects of the query
inline_json Same as the JSON format, except that the data property is a string containing JSON-escaped row data. Additional properties describe the data operation. This format is primarily used to send data to web hooks so that the web hook doesn't have to re-encode the JSON row data in order to pass it on to its ultimate destination.
csv Comma separated values with a header
txt Tab separated values with a header
html Simple html
xlsx MS Excel spreadsheet
wysiwyg_pdf Dashboard rendered in a tiled layout to produce a PDF document
assembled_pdf Dashboard rendered in a single column layout to produce a PDF document
wysiwyg_png Dashboard rendered in a tiled layout to produce a PNG image

Valid formats vary by destination type and source object. wysiwyg_pdf is only valid for dashboards, for example.

This API is rate limited to prevent it from being used for relay spam or DoS attacks
