Embedded Domain Allowlist

In the Embedded Domain Allowlist, enter the domain upon which this macro is hosted:

Aside: A list of all domains used by David Simpson Apps is available at https://dsapps.dev/policies/domains/.

Same-Origin Protections for Looker Login Pages

Though public embeds are fully supported, this macro assumes that the URL will be a private embed.

If the user has not already logged in, the Looker URL screen will be displayed within the page in the macro.

Using same-origin protections for your Looker login pages might prevent you from seeing the login screen for private embeds.

If this is causing any problems, set Same-Origin Protections for Looker Login Pages to Enabled.
