Hey team, I have quite an easy question I assume. Currenly I am placing credentials for certain API in the
local
folder in a file called
credentials.yml
. When trying to call that parameter now as an input to a node, I am getting the error message that this entry is not found in the
DataCatalog
. I was also reading here about that issue. Basically what I would like is to state the credentials parameters as an input to a node, just as I state parameters as an input to a node. Is that a thing? I am also reading here, that one could read them through code. I was under the impression though that credentials are nothing other than parameters about sensitive topics.

https://docs.kedro.org/en/stable/configuration/credentials.html You cannot call
credentials
as a parameter, this is by design to avoid credentials leaking. See if the example from above links helps you.
