hi there dagster people 😄 ! for one use-case we’re training a model using hyperparameters that are specified ad hoc just before launching the corresponding job run. I’m looking into using software-defined assets for this use-case, but from searching slack I believe ad hoc config prior to asset materialization is not currently supported, is this correct?

Hi @Dimitris Stafylarakis! You're correct that you cannot currently supply config to assets, but this is something we hope to add support for soon. We do currently allow you to supply config for resources used in a graph of assets, so you could use something like make_values_resource to do a similar thing as op config. You'll need to go to the launchpad view to input this config (you won't be able to specify it from the asset view), but this might work as a stopgap until we provide more fully-featured support for config
