dbt via GitHub

Connect dbt via GitHub to sync your metadata

If you do not use dbt Cloud, Canvas can download and compile your dbt project to generate the descriptions for your models and columns. This requires you to host your dbt project on Github and give Canvas access to your repository via OAuth.

Once you've granted Canvas access via OAuth, you must select the following:

  1. The repository containing your dbt project

  2. The branch of the repository that you'd like Canvas to build with (usually master or main)

  3. The schema in your warehouse that your dbt models build into. dbt requires this access to compile your project.
