Configuring the 'View in Looker' Link to Direct to Looker Instead of GitLab

Original Slack Thread

Hi all, i was exploring a lookml view and when I click on “view in looker” it brings me back to the gitlab page. Is there a setting I need to configure to have it link to looker?

hey Kelly! so the “view in looker” link is using something called an externalUrl on the DatasetProperties aspect of your dataset. I believe this is set in ingestion and the gitlab link is what’s being pulled. the UI should say “view in GitLab” in this situation instead but obviously it’s just saying “view in {platform name}”.
