dbt Failures As Monte Carlo Incidents

Monte Carlo allows you to surface dbt failures and errors as Monte Carlo incidents. Among other things, this will enable you to:

  • Route and receive notifications similar to other Monte Carlo incidents

  • Create wholistic incident reporting and tooling for all data issues

To enable this feature, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to Settings Page
  2. Click on "Integrations"
  3. Locate your dbt project under the “Orchestration Tool Connections” section
  4. Toggle the option "Receive dbt failures as incidents in Monte Carlo” to enable it

Settings / Integrations / Orchestration Tool Connections / Toggle Switch

After enabling the feature, Monte Carlo will display dbt failures and errors similarly to other Monte Carlo incidents.
