Hi all, new to prefect. I would like to load and apply profile / settings from a profile.toml and a logging.yml during runtime that is part of my repo, how would I best go about it / what is best practice? I've not found a viable solution via the docs or community threads. Any help is much appreciated.

It sounds like the PREFECT_PROFILE_PATH and PREFECT_LOGGING_SETTINGS_PATH settings might be what you want. You could set them as environment variables on a deployment. One thing to watch out for is if you're using a process worker to run deployments. By default, it will create a temporary directory to run your flow, making it difficult to choose a settings directory ahead of time. If it works for your use case, you could set the working directory on the worker to get around this. I know that's not quite setting them at runtime; but using these env vars makes it easy to use different profile and logging config files from one deployment run to the next

If you're using
it might be more difficult. You can use the
context manager to alter many settings at runtime, but last time I tried, it didn't work with logging settings
