Hi all, trying to get a POC up and running on dagster 1.3.10 using dbt 1.4.1. I have the existing dbt project that is working and when I reference the paths it appears to attempt to load but I get the error
2023-06-21 07:17:52 -0500 - dagster.code_server - INFO - Started Dagster code server for module SecurityMaster in process 2582919
/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/dagster/_core/workspace/context.py:610: UserWarning: Error loading repository location SecurityMaster:dagster._core.errors.DagsterInvalidDefinitionError: resource with key 'dbt' required by op 'run_dbt_281af' was not provided. Please provide a <class 'dagster._core.definitions.resource_definition.ResourceDefinition'> to key 'dbt', or change the required key to one of the following keys which points to an <class 'dagster._core.definitions.resource_definition.ResourceDefinition'>: ['io_manager']
my code is the simple example of f`rom dagster import Definitions, load_assets_from_modules`
from dagster_dbt import load_assets_from_dbt_project
from dagster import file_relative_path
from . import assets
DBT_PROJECT_PATH = file_relative_path(__file__, "../../../dbt-project/MyDbtProject")
DBT_PROFILES = file_relative_path(__file__, "../../../.dbt")
dbt_assets = load_assets_from_dbt_project(
project_dir=DBT_PROJECT_PATH, profiles_dir=DBT_PROFILES, key_prefix=["CompanyName"],use_build_command=True
Hi Mike! It looks like you'll need to define a
resource so Dagster can manage dbt. Here's a link in our dbt tutorial that shows you how to do that:
Copy code
resources = {
    "dbt": DbtCliClientResource(

defs = Definitions(assets=load_assets_from_modules([assets]), resources=resources)
so it is complaining about ImportError: cannot import name 'DBT_PROFILES' from partially initialized module 'ProjectMaster' (most likely due to a circular import) (/home/mike.needham/dagster/ProjectMaster/ProjectMaster/__init__.py)
I have an existing dbt project that is being used and do not want to mess with it so just trying to point to it
Thankfully, it looks like your new error message isn't about dbt or Dagster, but rather a Python module dependency issue. are you trying to import
from somewhere into your root-level
that was it, tracked it down to one of the imports
thanks for the help
blob salute 🎉
