Excluding models

dbt provides an --exclude flag with the same semantics as --select. Models specified with the --exclude flag will be removed from the set of models selected with --select.

$ dbt run --select my_package.*+ --exclude my_package.a_big_model+

Exclude a specific resource by its name or lineage:

# test$ dbt test --exclude not_null_orders_order_id$ dbt test --exclude orders
# seed$ dbt seed --exclude account_parent_mappings
# snapshot$ dbt snapshot --exclude snap_order_statuses$ dbt test --exclude orders+
