dbt-cloud-cli instruction is missing on dbt_cloud.yml

The problem I’m having

No instruction on how to configure dbt_cloud.yml.
$ dbt show
error loading configuration: could not open dbt_cloud.yml for reading: open /Users/xyz/.dbt/dbt_cloud.yml: no such file or directory

The context of why I’m trying to do this

Official instruction: Installing the dbt Cloud CLI (Alpha)

What I’ve already tried

Some example code or error messages

Put code inside backticks
  to preserve indentation
    which is especially important 
      for Python and YAML! 

Facing the same issue when installing it. Not sure what dbt_cloud.yml should look like. I tried exporting some env variables with (to me) reasonable names but doesn’t seem to work either.

Note: @David Sanchez originally posted this reply in Slack. It might not have transferred perfectly.

You can either create a dbt_cloud.yml file:

project-id: 1234567

or add an extra line to your dbt_project.yml file:


  - project-id: 1234567

@joellabes This did not work for me. I added another line but I still cannot utilize my dbt.
