Hello all, I am trialing out Prefect in my organization and am currently trying to use prefect to run existing docker containers. However, I am not finding documentation/tutorials that show how I can run existing built docker images with a prefect flow. I have prefect locally installed and am using the OSS version of it. I am basically wanting to just run the existing container, as is, with prefect. Any suggestions or documentation that I can look at to assist in this goal?

You might get a better response in the
channel since this one is just about the Prefect Server backend. It sounds like you’re wanting Prefect to orchestrate running existing containers, so you’re going to want to take a look at the
tasks in the task library. You may be specifically interested in this one: There is a good example in the example portion of the docs as well:

Ah, my mistake. I will take a look at this. That is exactly what I want to do. Have Prefect orchestrate running existing containers.
