We have had to make some changes to the plan, and unfortunately we are not close to phase 3. We are getting closer to completing phase 2, but will provide this functionality via API, not through the Looker UI.
In our current plan, we’ll be addressing the desired outcomes of 1b and 2 described above by providing API endpoints for two things:
- letting you move a LookML dashboard to a Space where it will exist just like a User Defined Dashboard (you can already do this today in the Looker UI, but API endpoints are not yet available), and
- allowing syncs from LookML to the dashboards in the Space (this will enable you to make edits in LookML and push those up to the dashboard your users are interacting with).
Using this workflow, you’ll be able to continue to take advantage of the benefits of LookML dashboards, but also have a version of those dashboards living in Spaces where they can also be surfaced in Favorites and Top Content. We are targeting Q3 for delivery of those API endpoints.
