Set up a connection
This video demonstrates creating a Looker connection.
After you start the connection, configure it in the Create connection panel and complete all the required * authentication settings:
|Name your connection *||Enter a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection. A unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting it from a list of the connections in your account.|
|Client ID *||Enter your Looker client ID.|
Enter your Looker instance URL.
|Client secret *||Enter your Looker client secret.
Multiple layers of protection, including AES 256 encryption, are in place to keep your secret safe. When editing this connection, you must re-enter this value each time; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
Tip: This connector documentation describes only the settings shown for the Simple view. For the corresponding HTTP settings, see token auth universal connector documentation.
