Looker offers the ability to copy a LookML dashboard into the Space of your choosing. In order to allow users to continue editing the dashboard after import into a Space, the dashboard will change from a LookML Dashboard to a User Defined Dashboard. A User Defined Dashboard is edited through the user interface instead of through LookML. See Building Dashboards for more information.

To copy dashboards from LookML into a new Space:

  1. Click Browse.
  2. Click on the LookML Dashboards section.
  3. Select the dashboard you would like to copy from LookML.

Next, click on the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner, and select Copy from LookML into a Space….

Finally, select the Space you would like to copy the dashboard into, then select Copy & View.

If you would like to be able to edit this dashboard, click the Edit button in the upper right-hand corner.

Tiles on the dashboard can then be rearranged and changed. Learn more about how to edit a User Defined Dashboard here.
