Back again! Struggling with importing a dbt project still. I got everything working on a branch deployment, but because I have review requirements to merge in Github, I couldn't merge from dagster cloud. I assumed I could merge and import as another dagster project, but deploying that had a rouge commit to main that reverted to generic
branch_deployments.yml
and
deploy.yml
files. Is there a way to import a dagster-ready dbt project repo?

Hey David - is re-applying your changes after the import introduces the generic files an option here? I'll check with the team about whether it's expected that it overwrites your deploy.yml and branch_deployments.yml file if they are already present

Yeah I ended up making it work. I basically committed my changes twice. Once to get my repo dagster-ready, after which I went into dagster cloud to add the code location. But with the auto-overwrite of those files, the deployment action failed, so I had to merge it again, manually select "try again" on the deployment in dagster cloud, after which it succeeded and I'm off and running
definitely some unexpected behavior there

Agreed - one thing is that once you have CI/CD set up to your satisfaction, you don't actually need to do anything in Dagster Cloud to add the code location - did you need any of the changes that it made, or was it a pure revert?

No that's a good callout, I also realized I was being superfluous by manually adding the code location. I didnt need the changes, and realized that manually adding a code location was just setting up the CI/CD 🙃 It's been a long few days, I appreciate all the help @daniel

All good - we're taking notes on all these papercuts and have a revamp of this flow in the works, appreciate you bearing with it

oh yeah, Ive loved dagster the few times I've used it (though this is the first time I'm setting it up), so it was worth it to get here!
