Base model for Looker assets.

Reference documentation

This is reference documentation covering the entire Atlan model. It is not the best place to start when trying to understand managing Looker assets in Atlan. For that, we would suggest starting with either:

  • Snippets — small, atomic examples of single-step use cases.
  • Patterns — walkthroughs of common multi-step implementation patterns.

The following illustrates how the various Looker objects inter-relate with each other:
