JSON artifacts

Write JSON artifacts‚Äč

The WRITE_JSON config determines whether dbt writes JSON artifacts (for example, manifest.json, run_results.json) to the target/ directory. JSON serialization can be slow, and turning this flag off might make invocations of dbt faster. Alternatively, you can disable this config to perform a dbt operation and avoid overwriting artifacts from a previous run step.

dbt run --no-write-json
