1. Tutorial
  2. Generating and Viewing dbt Artifacts

Now that we have downloaded the Elementary package, let’s understand its impact on our data. When we use dbt run, Elementary will generate a number of new artifacts in our database. These artifacts are used by Elementary for anomaly detection and testing.
To generate these artifacts use:

dbt run

To see these artifacts, we can navigate to our tutorial’s database; here, we will see a number of new Elementary artifacts have indeed been generated under <schema_name>_ELEMENTARY.

These artifacts are used by Elementary tests and the Elementary CLI and will be updated when we run dbt test, dbt run, and dbt build. For more information about Elementary’s dbt artifacts click here.

Next, let’s see how we add Elementary’s tests and anomaly detection to our data.
