You can ingest DBT Metadata both with the UI or by writing down your Workflow configuration:
DBT UI ingestion Configure the DBT ingestion directly in the UI.
DBT CLI ingestion Prepare the DBT ingestion with the CLI or your favourite scheduler.
What is DBT?
A DBT model provides transformation logic that creates a table from raw data.
DBT does the T in ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) processes – it doesn’t extract or load data, but it’s extremely good at transforming data that’s already loaded into your warehouse.
For information regarding setting up a DBT project and creating models please refer to the official DBT documentation here.
DBT Integration in OpenMetadata
OpenMetadata includes an integration for DBT that enables you to see what models are being used to generate tables.
Metadata regarding the tables and views generated via DBT is also ingested and can be seen.
