Logging model to MLflow using Feature Store API. Getting TypeError: join() argument must be str, bytes, or os.PathLike object, not 'dict'

I'm using databricks. Trying to log a model to MLflow using the Feature Store log_model function. but I have this error: TypeError: join() argument must be str, bytes, or os.PathLike object, not 'dict' I'am using the Databricks runtime ml (10.4 LTS ML (includes Apache Spark 3.2.1, Scala 2.12)).

fs.log_model(
model,
artifact_path="fs_model",
flavor=mlflow.sklearn,
training_set=training_set
)

And here are the error logs.

TypeError: join() argument must be str, bytes, or os.PathLike object, not 'dict'

I updated by Databricks Run Time from 10.4 to 12.1 and this solved the issue.

@ZacharyHuh​ :

The error message suggests that the os.path.join() function is expecting a string, bytes or os.PathLike object, but it received a dictionary instead. Specifically, the error seems to be coming from the rIt looks like the error is occurring when MLflow is attempting to read a YAML file associated with the model. Specifically, the read_yaml function in the mlflow.utils.file_utils module is throwing the error because it's expecting a path string, but is instead receiving a dictionary object.

To fix this error, you may want to check the model object that you are passing to fs.log_model. It's possible that there is a dictionary in this object that is causing the issue. You may need to modify the model object to ensure that it only contains strings, bytes, or os.PathLike objects.

Hope this helps! Please ket us know otherwise.
