Looker can send the results of a query or a dashboard directly to Slack as an attached file.
To do so, your Looker admin must have enabled Slack in the Actions panel of Looker. For information about enabling the Slack integration in Looker, see this README file and the Looker Actions panel documentation.
When configuring the schedule or sending your data, choose the Slack Attachment option in the Destination field. Looker will display delivery options that are specific to Slack:
- In the Share In field, enter the name of the Slack channel where you want to post your data. Include the leading ‘#' character. For example:
- In the Comment field, enter any text you want to include with the attachment.
- In the Filename field, enter a file name you want to give to the attachment file.
If you are scheduling a data delivery, once you have configured all the options, click Save All, and your query or dashboard will be delivered to Slack as scheduled. Or, if you are sending your data, click Send and your data will be delivered to your Slack channel.
