Managing BB bots

For each Hoot a corresponding BB Bot gets created automatically in the Hoot Admin space. To further enhance the experience of the Hoot, you can create BB Bots manually and connect them with the hoot. You would want to do this in scenarios such as:

  • You want to the Hoot get more frequent updates than the catalog status update intervals.

  • You have not cataloged all the parts of the data pipeline but you want to use them to influence the Hoot status.

Planning your BB Bots

One of the coolest features is the ability for data ops teams to build out a group of BB Bots to listen to their pipeline. For example, they could setup a Python load process that connects to all of the dbt Jobs. Then the team can setup various dbt ETL processes BB Bots and connect them to the corresponding catalog BB Bots. This gives you a full pipeline monitoring system outside of just the catalog status.
