Does anyone know if there is a way to have a sensor check the status of a job and execute whether the status ends up either a success or a failure? run_status_sensor seems to only check for success or failure. Not both.

You can create a sensor that queries the Dagster instance for runs and then yields a RunRequest for runs that have succeeded or failed.
Copy code
def my_sensor(context:SensorEvaluationContext):
  if context.instance.get_runs(filters=[RunFilter(statuses=[DagsterRunStatus.SUCCESS, DagsterRunStatus.FAILURE]:
👀 1
The DagsterInstance is very useful whenever you want to query state about your Dagster instance

@Zach Thanks for the guidance. I was able to get a sensor working exactly as I wanted.
