Connecting with dbt

dbt (data build tool) is a modern development framework that enables data analysts and data engineers to transform data by writing select statements. dbt handles turning these select statements into tables and views.

The Firebolt adapter for dbt brings together dbt’s state-of-the-art development tools and Firebolt’s next-generation analytics performance. On top of dbt’s core features, the adapter offers native support for all of Firebolt’s index types and has been specifically enhanced to support ingestion from S3 using Firebolt’s external tables mechanics.
