How does say, a snowflake connection in Atlan know that the table A referenced in LookerML/sql in Looker is actually the same table A?
Each project can only be linked to a source that we individually obtain from the Looker APIs. In addition to this, the API provides the default database name, and the LookML files contain the table name. We link the two pieces of information to verify. In essence: Even when there are two table names in the same source but separate databases or schemes, the connection is extremely accurate.
