How to set up dbt Cloud

πŸ€“ Who can do this? You will probably need your dbt Cloud administrator to run these commands β€” you may not have access yourself.

If you have a dbt Cloud account, Atlan can help enrich your metadata in Atlan.

Create service token

Only dbt Cloud administrators can generate service account tokens. This is required for authenticating as a service account user and to set up granular access permissions.

To generate a service token, follow the steps in the dbt documentation and configure the following permissions:

  • Team plans: add Read-only access to all projects you want to integrate into Atlan. This permission is required to authorize requests to both the Admin API and Discovery API.
  • Enterprise plans: add Account Viewer access to all projects you want to integrate into Atlan. This will provide read-only access to your dbt projects and their environments, jobs, runs, and more.

Be sure to copy the generated token for crawling dbt.
