dbt Cloud Artifacts
When dbt Cloud runs dbt jobs, it generates and saves artifacts. These artifacts, like
sources.json are used to power different aspects of dbt Cloud, namely: dbt Docs and source freshness reporting.
From your Account Settings page, you can select specific jobs that build the "production" version of your documentation
Once a job has been selecting from the Documentation section of the Artifacts page, dbt Cloud's left-hand navbar will update to include a link to documentation for this job. This link will always point to the latest version of the documentation for your account.
As with Documentation, configuring a job for the Source Freshness artifact setting will update dbt Cloud's left-hand navbar to include a link to the latest Source Freshness report for the selected job.
