which I point prefect via the env var:
My config.toml looks like (obviously with host name actually filled in):
Copy code
    graphql_url = "<host-name>:4200/graphql"
When I
prefect server start
and visit host:8080 I get the front page of the ui asking to connect to host:4200/graphql. Ideally it would be good if this could still be connected automatically using the

Hi @Elliot Oram - this was changed with ^0.13.0, but an additional way to configure your GraphQL endpoint via environment variable/config.toml is on our near-term radar. Check out this SO answer and this issue to learn more. In the meantime, you can set your custom endpoint via the input field on the Home screen; this will save in your browser's local storage so should stick around for awhile.
