Deprecation Notice: Old LookML Parameters (3.16+)


(Brett Sauve) #1

Looker improves LookML over time to be more useful and user-friendly. In 3.16 several parameters and types were removed.

These parameters are associated with the Deprecated LookML Parameters legacy feature (for more details see the Legacy Features docs page):

  • From release 3.16 to 4.22, the legacy feature is on by default, which means that you can use these parameters
  • From release 5.0 to 5.2, the legacy feature is off by default, which means that you cannot use these parameters
  • As of release 5.4, these parameters can never be used
