Hi, I found the following strange naming convention. Main Flow run names and sub flow run names are not the same in the Prefect Server UI.
Example: MainFlow() has a subflow called SubFlow(). When I call MainFlow(), the Prefect Server created a MainFlow() name called
Persimmon-python
. In the timeline, it launched something called
quartz-copperhead
. And then in the log it says it launched a flow run for the SubFlow() called
debonair-dog
.
So I understand that the flow name for the MainFlow() is
Persimmon-python
, and that the SubFlow() name is
debonair-dog
. Then what is
quartz-copperhead
? It’s a blue bar in the timeline view when I clicked on the MainFlow()’s
Persimmon-python

Walkthrough: 1. My MainFlow() started a flow run called
flying-pug
2. The MainFlow() calles a subflow. As you can see it’s called
tuscan-lynx
in the log on the bottom of the screen shot. 3. On the upper right corner, you can see that the very first green bar in the timeline, my MainFlow() created a run called
attractive-trout
4. So, in summary, MainFlow =
flying-pug
and the subflow is called
tuscan-lynx
. So what exactly is
attractive-trout
?
