@Scout is it possible to override global resource definitions with job-specific configurations using the config field of an asset job?

Yes, it is possible to override global resource definitions with job-specific configurations using the
config
field of an asset job. The documentation provides an example of how to use the
define_asset_job
function to specify job-specific configurations, including resource configurations. Here's an example from the documentation:
Copy code
python from dagster import define_asset_job, RunConfig, AssetSelection  dbt_job = define_asset_job(     name="dbt_job",     selection=AssetSelection.all(),     config=RunConfig(         resources={             "dbt": DbtCliResource(                 project_dir=os.fspath(dbt_project_dir),                 profile="dev",  # My overrides,             )         }     ), )
In this example, the
config
parameter of
define_asset_job
is used to provide job-specific configurations for the resources. The
RunConfig
object is used to specify the resources and their configurations that should be applied when the job is executed. This allows you to override the global resource definitions for the specific job.
