Cannot use a managed folder as an input of a python recipe created from python code using builder

Hi team,

I currently encountered an urgent issue with our project automation pipeline. In a Python code recipe, I used builder to create a new python recipe, and have added a dataset as input, 3 new datasets as output. In order to save some model objects to a managed folder, I need to add an existing folder "Pickle_Files" as input of the newly created python recipe. (I can't add the folder through the UI, because all the steps and files are automatically generated by the previous python script).

I didn't have issues when I used files as inputs. So is there a way to add a managed folder as input of a python recipe in code?

Thanks,

Anna

When I created a new managed folder in the python code, moved it to the current working zone, and then tried to use this new folder as input of another new python recipe, it showed a new error:

code:

new_folder = project.create_managed_folder("test")

new_folder.move_to_zone("vdVhYpH")

builder.with_input(new_folder)

error:

TypeError: Object of type DSSManagedFolder is not JSON serializable
