Instead of defining your monitor placement specifications in the Synq UI, you can also provide relevant metadata to specify where to place monitors programmatically. This is beneficial if you prefer to manage monitor placement through code, e.g., enforce it through your CI/CD development process.

Synq currently supports defining monitors as code only for tables that are materialized through dbt in the associated YML file.

YML Specification

Below is an annotated example of defining a domain in the dbt meta field.


You can point Synq to use specific values from the meta tag to place monitors.
