Project description

OpenLineage dbt integration

Wrapper script for dbt for automatic metadata collection



  • Model run lifecycle
  • Model inputs / outputs


Right now, openlineage-dbt only supports bigquery, snowflake, spark and redshift dbt adapters.


$ pip3 install openlineage-dbt

To install from source, run:

$ pip install .


HTTP Backend Environment Variables

openlineage-dbt uses OpenLineage client to push data to OpenLineage backend.

OpenLineage client depends on environment variables:

  • OPENLINEAGE_URL - point to service which will consume OpenLineage events
  • OPENLINEAGE_API_KEY - set if consumer of OpenLineage events requires Bearer authentication key
  • OPENLINEAGE_NAMESPACE - set if you are using something other than the default namespace for job namespace.


To begin collecting dbt metadata with OpenLineage, replace dbt run with dbt-ol run.

Additional table and column level metadata will be available if catalog.json, result of running dbt docs generate will be found in target directory.
