How can a job utilize an asset? For instance, my asset being
data_in
and my job being
insert_data
. I don't need
insert_data
to return anything, so it can't be defined as an asset. I just need to be able to run
insert_data
on demand (currently) to insert data that has been consumed.

Hey @Aaron T is there a reason that you can’t materialize data_in directly? Is there something else going on in insert_data in addition?

Lol nope... it was late and I was trying to use an
op
that did not have a return in a
graph_asset
and my code location was not loading. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
