What is Embedding?

Embedding allows you to bring Looker reports and dashboards into the tools your employees use the most.
That could be:

  • Public static reports on your website
  • A private authenticated dashboard in your day-to-day tools
  • A full embedded experience within your product for your customers and suppliers

Private Embedding

Private embedding allows you to embed a Look, Explore or dashboard that only Looker users can see. You can embed a Look, dashboard, or Explore by adding /embed/ to the URL.
