Hi! Having a potential issue regarding observable source assets. Problem is fully described here but the gist is my decorated function is calling my io managers output function. Additionally I’ve got multiple io managers, where the source asset is using the non default, but the function call is falling into the default IO, even though it’s not specified. Anyone else encounter this? I can’t see why it would be calling the output function, unless that’s intended. My understanding was the observable shouldn’t change the source data or materialize new tables, but give you a link to externally created assets. Thanks!
