The Homepage page in the General section of Looker’s Admin menu lets admins configure a default homepage for their Looker instance. Looker admins can also set a homepage for a specific user or group with the
landing_page user attribute.
Setting a default homepage for your instance
You can set the default homepage for your instance to the pre-built Looker homepage or to a URL within Looker. By default, Looker displays your organization’s shared folders when users log in to Looker or navigate to the homepage:
To specify a different default homepage for your instance, select one of the following options on the Homepage page under Set a default homepage for your organization:
- Looker’s pre-built homepage: The pre-built Looker homepage shows your favorited and recently viewed content all on one page.
- A URL within Looker: You can set the default homepage to a specific board, folder, or Markdown file (such as a README or document file in a project) by specifying a relative URL such as
If you have configured group or user homepage settings with the
landing_page user attribute, those settings will override the default homepage you have chosen for your instance. Users with group or user homepages will still be able to access a link to the instance-wide default homepage from the left navigation or Browse menu.
Setting a homepage for a specific user or group
You can assign a specific homepage to a user or to a group by setting the value of the
landing_page user attribute to a relative URL within Looker. If you want to assign a specific homepage to multiple users, we recommend that you create a new group specifically for that homepage option.
Setting a homepage for a specific group overrides the default homepage for your instance for members of the group. Setting a user-specific homepage also overrides any group homepage settings as well as the default homepage.
