I just started using Dagster, and am trying to grep the core ideas against airflow as my backdrop. One question I have is around the concept of multiple DAGs in Airflow and being able to connect tasks across DAGs. Is there a similar concept in Dagster, where I can define multiple jobs and have ops in a job depend on an op in another?

If I am understanding clearly, you are referring to the
TriggerDagRunOperator
in airflow. If yes, then - I have also been trying to understand Dagster from an airflow background and I am realising that something like this can be done using
sensors
in Dagster.

Yes! That is exactly what I am looking for. There is also an
ExternalTaskSensor
which is more granular. I will check out the docs for
sensors
. Thanks!

Hi ramnath - check out asset sensors in particular for one way to set up these types of dependencies: https://docs.dagster.io/concepts/partitions-schedules-sensors/sensors#asset-sensors
thank you box 1
