Hello, I have upstream data from databricks DBFS tables that I would like flyte tasks to consume from. Is this supported by Flyte? What are some of the approaches you suggest? Thanks.

is this just input? Can you read it using some python library?
if so you can make a transformer to read from DBFs ? HDFS
also flytes fsspec supports hdfs already -
BTW, if you want to connect upstream with downstream, this is possible now with Union Artifacts
happy to do a demo
