Problem: Receiving the error: "Uh Oh! Something went wrong. 500" when selecting "Add to project" from SQL Runner, in order to add a query straight to a derived table view.
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)
Looker::Model::InvalidFileNameError : File view_name.view.lkml already exists.
Troubleshooting: The root cause of this issue is when we already created a view with the same name. Changing the view name, or deleting the existing view, solved this error.
