Hello everyone! Quick question, what is the correct way of defining an optional input in the Kedro pipeline? is it possible? The function takes some df's inputs as optional but I would also want to have that feature in the pipeline to not edit it everytime one input is not available. Thanks!

It's possible with custom dataset
Or workarounded with the use of PartitionedDataSet

Great recommendations @marrrcin, Finally the workaround I used was that the node function had the inputs as Optional and then I passed a dict on the input parameters to map each input with their respective catalog and name on the function and worked perfectly. Thanks!
