Optimize the Potential of DataOps Development with dbt
Make the most of the DataOps Development Environment (DDE) by using the latest dbt versions for better production efficiency. DDE is most effective when used with the recent dbt versions, which significantly boosts the development speed.
In DDE, specify the version by setting the DATAOPS_FEATURE_MATE_DBT_VERSION environment variable, for example, DATAOPS_FEATURE_MATE_DBT_VERSION=1.4. Read more.... In the DataOps pipeline, set the variable in your project’s variables.yml file. Sign up for the DDE private preview by reaching out to ours Support team.
