rfr = RandomForestRegressor(n_estimators=1, min_samples_leaf=7)
preprocess = make_column_transformer(
                 (StandardScaler(), ~categorical),
                 (OneHotEncoder(handle_unknown='ignore'), categorical))

param_grid = {"RandomForestRegressor__n_estimators": [1,10,20,50,75,200],
              "RandomForestRegressor__min_samples_leaf": range(1,10)}
pipe = make_pipeline(preprocess, RandomForestRegressor())

grid = GridSearchCV(pipe, param_grid, cv=5)

When I do grid.fit(X,y) I am getting following error. Why?

The problem seems to be that your pipeline uses a fresh instance of RandomForestRegressor, so your param_grid is using nonexistent variables of the pipeline. There are two choices (I tend to prefer the second):

  1. Use rfr in the pipeline instead of a fresh RandomForestRegressor, and change your parameter_grid accordingly (rfr__n_estimators).

  2. Change param_grid to use the lowercased name randomforestregressor__n_estimators; see the docs on make_pipeline:

    it ... does not permit naming the estimators. Instead, their names will be set to the lowercase of their types automatically.
