AYX Pyhton SDK optional input anchor


When trying to create a tool via the Python SDK with an optional input anchor it still shows the error that there is a missing incoming connection. When I make a connection the error goes away and everything works fine.

In the ayx_workspace.json I specified the input to be optional like this:


                "input_anchors": {
                    "Input": {
                        "label": "",
                        "allow_multiple": false,
                        "optional": true





Any help would be appreciated!
