Any changes made to your dbt model will identify downstream objects in both the data warehouse and business intelligence tool, if integrated with Metaplane.
It’s impossible to account for every downstream dashboard before merging code. Metaplane’s impact analysis previews show you what is downstream from the models you’re changing in the pull request so you can sync with your teammates before making breaking changes.
Refactoring and cleaning up unused data assets is a habit every data team should encourage. Having impact analysis in your pull requests helps your data team merge these changes with confidence.
