test-paths

dbt_project.yml
test-paths: [directorypath]

Definition

Optionally specify a custom list of directories where data tests are located.

Default

Without specifying this config, dbt will search for data tests in the tests directory, i.e. test-paths: ["tests"].

Examples

Use a subdirectory named custom_tests instead of tests for data tests

dbt_project.yml
test-paths: ["custom_tests"]
