dbt monitoring and artifacts
After you successfully install Elementary, configured a connection profile and created a configuration file, it's time to start monitoring your dbt executions using the CLI and dbt package.

How Elementary monitors your dbt project?

Elementary dbt monitoring includes a dbt package and CLI. The dbt package is added to your project, and uploads dbt artifacts to the database and schema you configure for Elementary connection profile as part of your dbt runs.
After your dbt run, execute the Elementary CLI edr monitor command. This will execute the analysis of the dbt artifacts, and alert to Slack on failures and errors according to your configuration.
