Hi team, is there a way to access the kedro catalog at some arbitrary point in a run? Context: I’m using hooks to run Great Expectations, and need access to the Kedro context and catalog during an Action in Great Expectations. However I can’t pass in the catalog from the hook into the action because I’m not calling the Action
function directly, Great Expectations is doing it, and the config only allows for passing in serializable objects

Hi @Melvin Kok I am not too familiar with the Action concept in GE. Usually you would do the data valiadation when data is save or load thus using the hook. What is missing that you need to also access the catalog and context?
