Question about Parameters:
I'm running into errors with parameters being passed into a mapped task.
Copy code
@task(name="Update a tables partition")
def update_partitions(table, task_start_date=None, task_end_date=None):
    # print(task_start_date)
    # print(task_end_date)

with Flow(name="demo", on_failure=datadog_notifier) as flow:
    start_date = Parameter('task_start_date', required=False)
    end_date = Parameter('task_end_date', required=False)

    tables_to_create = get_uncreated_tables()
    tables_already_created = get_created_tables()
    # tables to create will have created + tables_already_created, task_start_date=start_date, task_end_date=end_date)
Other tasks removed for clarity, but they return a list of objects. Results in an error:

Removing the parameters runs everything fine.
Found the answer, needed to set the parameters as unmapped.

Hi @Ben Davison, can you elaborate a bit more how your
deals with the failure? Thanks!
