we are using dbt for our DWH transformations and adding additional documentation for columns, tables etc. At some point we want to load that into a Data Catalog like DataHub.
Currently our redash users have to handle to platforms that are not linked. e.g. they have to look up the schema and table in redash, navigate to the dbt documentation and search there again. It would be great to allow some kind of linking from redash to the dbt model documentation.
There are different ways to implement this:
- Add placeholder above the redash schema explorer and allow adding a link to documentation per configured data source there.
- Add generic link to every table that will directly land on the dedicated documentation page.
Not an expert on the redash code but implementation should be rather simple.
Happy to hear your thoughts, thank you!
