Go to Field Parameter List

This section refers to the hidden parameter that is part of a dimension, measure, or filter

hidden can also be used as part of an explore, described here

Definition

If you want a field to be available for modeling, but not shown to users, you can hide it from the Field Picker by using the hidden parameter.

The default value of hidden is false. Hidden fields can still be accessed in the UI if they are manually added to the URL, and will show up in some Looker windows. Therefore, think of hidden as a way to keep the Field Picker clean, and not a security feature.

Examples

Prevent the Raw Event Stream dimension from appearing in the Field Picker:

- dimension: raw_event_stream sql: ${TABLE}.event_stream hidden: true
