Exit codes

When dbt exits, it will return an exit code of either 0, 1, or 2.

Exit CodeCondition
0The dbt invocation completed without error.
1The dbt invocation completed with at least one handled error (eg. model syntax error, bad permissions, etc). The run was completed, but some models may have been skipped.
2The dbt invocation completed with an unhandled error (eg. ctrl-c, network interruption, etc).

While these exit codes may change in the future, a zero exit code will always imply success whereas a nonzero exit code will always imply failure.
