Your Paradime Catalog exists in two states, Production Mode and Development Mode.
Production Mode catalog is a feature available to Admin, Developer and Business users.
Production Mode catalog is build using the latest version of your dbt™️ repository from your default git branch (usually called main or master) and Information schema from your Production connection.
Production Mode is the production version of your Catalog data products. Every Paradime users will have access to the Production catalog. In Production Mode, data products are read only and no editing functionality is available.
Using the Production Catalog, you can explore the most up to date version of your dbt™️ data products and connected integrations.
You can let your stakeholders search and discover data products in their most up to date versions.
Development Mode catalog is a feature available to Admin and Developer users.
Development Mode catalog is build using the current version of your dbt™️ repository from the git branch currently selected in the Paradime IDE and Information schema from your Development Environment default connection.
Development Mode lets you make changes to dbt™️ yaml documentation directly from the Catalog UI. Changes you make to your dbt™️ models and columns descriptions do not affect your Production Catalog until they are pushed and a Pull Request is opened to bring your changes to Production.
From the Paradime Development Catalog UI, after making any change to your dbt™️ data products documentation, Paradime sync this back into the relevant dbt™️ .yml files.
