So right now, BI engine has some API that’s the only way to integrate with it. Data Studio works with that API, but not much else yet.

In the coming months, apparently, they’ll be releasing a SQL API, and once that’s available, it should be pretty evident how to use it w/ Looker. I don’t have a real guess as to when that is… But that’s the lay of the land!
