Definition

Optionally specify a custom list of directories to copy to the target directory as part of the docs generate command. This is useful for rendering images in your repository in your project documentation.

Changelog

Default

By default, dbt will not compile any additional files as part of docs generate, i.e. analysis-paths: []

Examples

Compile files in the assets subdirectory as part of docs generate

dbt_project.yml
asset-paths: ["assets"]

Any files included in this directory will be copied to the target/ directory as part of dbt docs generate, making them accessible as images in your project documentation.
