args = task.connect(args, name="Args")Is "kind of" reserved section for argparse. Meaning you can always use it, but argparse will also push/pull things from there. Is there any specific reason for not using a different section name?
SlipperyDove40 following on the missing section name, this seems like backwards compatibility issue. Try calling with
my_params = Task.get_parameters(backwards_compatibility=False)This should always add the section name prefix.
