I'm following the steps in with my own data and having a difficulty time debugging this warning
/local_disk0/.ephemeral_nfs/envs/pythonEnv-6ba80c76-407b-4675-a454-0051f1cc3503/lib/python3.10/site-packages/statsforecast/arima.py1557 UserWarning:
xreg not required by this model, ignoring the provided regressors
I've been plumbing the source code and I think
might be dispatching with a model that I don't intend it to (no exog regressors). Does anybody have any advice on how I can debug further?

Hi @John Lashlee I executed the how-to-guide on exogenous regressors using the M5 data that is used as an example and I didn’t get the warning that you got. Could you share a reproducible example? If you can’t, can you check that your dataset contains both past and future values of the exogenous regressors? Maybe that is what is causing that warning.

Thanks, Maria, I'll try to make a repro example.
