on-run-end Context

Caution

These variables are only available in the context for on-run-end hooks. They will evaluate to none if used outside of an on-run-end hook!

schemas

The schemas context variable can be used to reference the schemas that dbt has built models into during a run of dbt. This variable can be used to grant usage on these schemas to certain users at the end of a dbt run.

Example:

dbt_project.yml
on-run-end:
- "{% for schema in schemas %}grant usage on schema {{ schema }} to db_reader;{% endfor %}"

In practice, it might not be a bad idea to put this code into a macro:

macros/grants.sql
{% macro grant_usage_to_schemas(schemas, user) %}
{% for schema in schemas %}
grant usage on schema {{ schema }} to {{ user }};
{% endfor %}
{% endmacro %}
dbt_project.yml
on-run-end:
- "{{ grant_usage_to_schemas(schemas, 'user') }}"

database_schemas

The database_schemas context variable can be used to reference the databases and schemas that dbt has built models into during a run of dbt. This variable is similar to the schemas variable, and should be used if a dbt run builds resources into multiple different database.

Example:

macros/grants.sql
{% macro grant_usage_to_schemas(database_schemas, user) %}
{% for (database, schema) in database_schemas %}
grant usage on {{ database }}.{{ schema }} to {{ user }};
{% endfor %}
{% endmacro %}
dbt_project.yml
on-run-end:
- "{{ grant_usage_to_schemas(database_schemas, user) }}"

Results

Changelog

The results variable contains a list of Result objects with one element per resource that executed in the dbt job. The Result object provides access within the Jinja on-run-end context to the information that will populate the run results JSON artifact.

Example usage:

macros/log_results.sql
{% macro log_results(results) %}
{% if execute %}
{{ log("========== Begin Summary ==========", info=True) }}
{% for res in results -%}
{% set line -%}
node: {{ res.node.unique_id }}; status: {{ res.status }} (message: {{ res.message }})
{%- endset %}
{{ log(line, info=True) }}
{% endfor %}
{{ log("========== End Summary ==========", info=True) }}
{% endif %}
{% endmacro %}
dbt_project.yml
on-run-end: "{{ log_results(results) }}"
