Hello! I've started using software-defined assets. For assets that need specific resources, I've figured out I can create a job out of them, and specify resources in the job. However, is there a way to specify "default resources" for when using the "Materialize" buttons in Dagit directly on the assets? Although I can use a job, the ability to directly materialize from the asset graph sound great, but it fails if you do not provide resource definitions. Thanks!
Actually, it seems like @Leo Qin has the solution in the message right above -
seems to do the trick, didn't realize it worked on assets too. Thanks!
