Connector

The mechanism by which Looker Studio accesses a specific data platform, system, or product.

In Looker Studio, connecting to your data involves the following components:

  • Connectors connect Looker Studio to your underlying data. Connecting to your data creates a data source in Looker Studio.
  • Data sources represent a particular instance of a connector: for example, a connection to a specific BigQuery table or query, a Google Analytics property, or a Google Sheet. Data sources let you configure the fields and options provided by the connector used to create that connection instance. In addition, the data source gives you a secure way to share information and insights with report viewers who may not be able to directly access the underlying data.
