Why I got many errors when I published to sbsar, like this:
Can't find subgraph input:
wrn: Input identifier: Input_9
wrn: Subgraph Url: pkg://moss_weathering?dependency=1222628018
wrn: From Graph: pkg://Stones?dependency=1262229461

Designer Version: 5.4.0, Platform: Windows

I got it fixed by deleting an isolate node in the graph, you can find the node by checking Denpendicies, there is a warning for this node, likely some third-party library missing from the store.
