Hi team, I have an asset that hasn't been materialized yet. However, other assets would like to use the input of this function. Is there a way to materialize this asset in the
load_input
function when reading it?

Hey Qwame! Do you need the asset itself? Have you tried adding it as a dependency through
non_dep_args
? https://docs.dagster.io/guides/dagster/non-argument-deps#assets-without-io I'd advise against trying to materialize an asset in
load_input
.
