Secret objects in Prefect are used to provide sensitive information to the workflow like authentication parameters of any third party app. Is my understanding correct?Correct! I believe but am not 100% sure that you can use Secret objects (with the
flag set to
) without Prefect Cloud.
I could not find any documentation on user management with prefect server or prefect core. Is user management possible on prefect server. Is which user triggered which task tracked?User management is possible with Prefect Cloud, but explicitly not handled in Prefect Server. Using Prefect Cloud, you create tokens with differing permissions for different parts of the workflow. For example, the Agents should have a Runner scoped token associated with them. When the tokens are generated, certain information about your Prefect Cloud account is embedded into them, depending on the scope of the token and some other factors. For reference, here is the link to the docs for Secrets https://docs.prefect.io/orchestration/concepts/secrets.html#setting-a-secret.
