Understanding errors

I often find myself seeing a failed sync and trying to determined what actually went wrong. I’ve seen in a few discourse posts users asking what the logs means.

I wonder if we either need better logging or a documentation piece e.g. Debugging errors | dbt Docs

Thank you Daniel! I shared this feedback with our product team.
In my opinion, there is still room for improvement on the logging side to make the errors more explicit, but I regularly notice that they are getting better.
On the documentation side, the DBT debugging guide is indeed a good example of what we could do!
