Hi 👋 When trying to run a Flow on ECS Fargate I get the error: Submission failed. KeyError: “No class found for dispatch key ‘ecs-task’ in registry for type ‘Block’.” The whole setup here is an ECS Task running as a work pool and listens to new Runs. The Task was started with the command “prefect worker start --pool test-pool” Then I defined a new deployment with this configuration:
Copy code
prefect deployment build jobs/test1/test1.py:test1 \
--name test1 \
--output jobs/test1/deployment \
--storage-block github/yuvital-prefect-github \
--pool test-pool \
--infra-block ecs-task/ecs-test-block
Meaning when the Work Pool Task poll for a new flow to run, it should also create a new ECS Task for that flow run. Looking at the logs I can see that the work pool do get the new flow to run, but fails with: Submission failed. KeyError: “No class found for dispatch key ‘ecs-task’ in registry for type ‘Block’.”

Sounds like
prefect-aws
isn’t installed in your worker’s environment — but note that workers are meant to be used with the
ECSWorker
not the
ECSTask
block
i.e you’d want a work pool of type
ecs
rather than
prefect-agent

Yes
This this the Task definition of the work pool:

I don’t think ECS respects
EXTRA_PIP_PACKAGES
because it bypasses our entrypoint
y

Yaron Levi

04/26/2023, 6:40 PM
Let me understand because I am little bit confused (-:
I’ve created a new work pool like so:

I think if you add
/opt/prefect/entrypoint.sh
at the start of your commands it’ll install
prefect-aws
like you want

It runs nice on ECS and listens to new Runs
z

Zanie

04/26/2023, 6:42 PM
I see — I don’t think you can set an infrastructure block when using non-agent work pool types (cc @alex)

How should I define a deployment so that it will be picked up by this worker pool?
Ah so it’s not possible to create a new ECS Task for each Run?
Meaning when the work pool task polled for a new flow, it should create a new ECS Task.
z

Zanie

04/26/2023, 6:44 PM
We do create a new ECS task for each run
That’s how the ECS worker functions
y

Yaron Levi

04/26/2023, 6:45 PM
Ok, so what I am defining wrong here?

Workers don’t use infrastructure blocks in the same way that agents do
The work pool defines the infrastructure instead
y

Yaron Levi

04/26/2023, 6:46 PM
ok, so instead of:
Copy code
prefect deployment build jobs/test1/test1.py:test1 \
--name test1 \
--output jobs/test1/deployment \
--storage-block github/yuvital-prefect-github \
--pool test-pool \
--infra-block ecs-task/ecs-test-block
I should do:
Copy code
prefect deployment build jobs/test1/test1.py:test1 \
--name test1 \
--output jobs/test1/deployment \
--storage-block github/yuvital-prefect-github \
--pool test-pool
(removing the infra from the deployment?)

To create a deployment in an
ecs
work pool, you’ll want to use the new Prefect Projects functionality. Following the project tutorial is a good way to get started: https://docs.prefect.io/latest/tutorials/projects/

Yaron Levi

04/26/2023, 6:48 PM
ok got it, and following this method, when the worker pool get a new Run, it will create a new ECS Task for it?
a

alex

04/26/2023, 6:51 PM
Yes, the ECS worker will create a new ECS for each run. Looking at your original error, I’m surprised you got that error for this deployment because workers should not execute flow runs from deployments with a storage block. Do you have any other agents polling this work pool by any chance?
y

Yaron Levi

04/26/2023, 6:52 PM
No. I’ve checked. Nobody else is polling this work pool.
And also looking at the logs of the work pool:
Like you’ve said:

alex

04/26/2023, 6:57 PM
Gotcha, that’s a bug. It shouldn’t have executed that flow run. Would you please submit an issue for this?
y

Sure I’ll try. I am still trying to wrap my head around all the moving parts.
