Who can access Looker Support?
Looker Support is available to administrators and developers on your Looker instance. This allows us to focus on your most involved users, who may need in-depth help with the Looker product. You should develop your own internal process for helping your users, especially because you'll know the ins and outs of your data better than anyone.
Chat support is available on Looker instances that are running an officially supported Looker version. Looker-hosted instances automatically update to supported releases. If your Looker instance is customer-hosted, and running an unsupported Looker version, update your Looker instance to a supported Looker version to gain access to chat support.
You do not need to log in to a ticketing system to reach Support. Looker maintains a ticketing system internally, and all Support requests can be viewed through the customer portal in the Looker Help Center. You can communicate with Looker Support directly through the portal, through chat, or by email.
Looker does not have an escalation path, because every Looker Support analyst is trained to the same high level. We do have internal processes to make sure lengthy issues maintain focus, and to pull in engineering resources if necessary, but you do not need to follow a special process or achieve a certain level of severity to reach these resources.
