Hola, This is Ram.. I have trouble connecting my dbt git repo and doing a transformation.. Is there any simple documentation that helps me understand how to connect Airbyte with git repo (dbt code) and perform the transformation? Also have a doubt with Airbyte transformation (dbt).. does dbt connect to source, does the transformation and loads to target (ETL way) or does dbt do transformations from target (ELT approach) or can we do both??.. Appreciate your comments and views, Thanks in advance!

the custom-dbt process will connect to your "target" database

Got it thanks Marcos! This helps.. 🙂
Have a quick doubt, how does this dbt transformation take into account the profiles.yml connection details.. as that file won't be present in Git

Airbyte will create a profiles.yml automatically using the destination config information

Got it! Thanks again Marcos..! Is there any config file where I could specify the target env (since we have multiple targets configured in profiles.yml) similar in Airbyte?

you can add manually your profiles.yml in the airbyte instance and invoke your target in the dbt command using variables
