Not sure if this is the best place for this question let me know if its better suited for another channel. For secret management (api keys for example) is it recommended using the Prefect cloud’s management system vs. the machine that is executing the flow runs? I can see the benefits in keeping in Prefect clouds system because if you need to a spin up a new Virtual machine or run it another computer you’d keep them in a single env.

@Ramzi A the Secrets in the UI is definitely a great place for credentials because they are encrypted and can be stored/retrieved in a secure way using PrefectSecret task.
