Hi guys. I am trying to run a task in sandbox that reads and writes data to an external sql db running in another container. How can I make this work? sorry if this is a silly question but I am pretty new with flyte. Thank you!

Hi @Aswanth Krishnan! I recommend you to take a look at this thread It isn't SQL-related, but goes along the same lines.
