Connecting Looker to superQuery

These instructions explain how to connect your Looker account to superQuery’s query optimization engine.
When connected, your queries will pass through superQuery — where it will be automatically optimized — before being executed in BigQuery. 

The result: a significant reduction in query costs and execution time.


  1. Click on the Integrations link in the sidebar of superQuery:

  2. Enable your desired connection by clicking “Connect”
  3. After clicking “Connect” you’ll see the username and password screen, like so:



  1.  Whitelist your IP Address if necessary
  2.  Copy the hostname and port from this window into your service of choice.
    • server:
    • port: 3306

6.  Finalize the connection.



  • For this integration, you will need to subscribe to Looker.
