Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @Scotty! The good news is that the fix for this is on the roadmap and will be rolled out in the near future. We don’t have a specific ETA to provide, but it is planned and in the pipeline. For now, the previous workarounds provided in other forum threads with this error will still be viable.
