Some of your data is used downstream in dashboards, applications, data science pipelines, reverse ETLs, etc. These downstream data consumers are called exposures.

The Elementary lineage graph presents downstream exposures of two origins:

  1. Elementary automated BI integrations
  2. Exposures configured in your dbt project. Read about how to configure exposures in code.

Automated lineage to the BI


Elementary will automatically and continuously extend the column-level lineage to the dashboard level of your data visualization tool.

If your BI tool has its own modeling layers (e.g. data sources in Tableu, Explores in Looker), these will also be included in the graph and column lineage.
