In dashboard lookml there is a “series_color” field that lets you set the color based on the name of the series (the value of the pivot dimension) in a chart:
series_colors: series_name: css_color
We have a series of products that are each closely linked with specific colors and we would really like to be able to consistently and automatically color any charts based on those linked colors. There doesn’t seem to be a way to specify this in the view model files - we end up editing each visualization (Look) independently to set the colors the way we want. If we could allow the above dashboard lookml color settings to also be applied at the level of a single dimension in a view file that would be really helpful.
Or maybe there’s already a way to do this?
