Hi all, I have a question regarding Prefect Server and Dask (maybe it has been already answered but I can’t find it by myself, sorry 😅 ) I was able to run Prefect flows on a local Dask cluster from my PyCharm dev environment. Now, the next step would be to register a flow on my local Prefect Server and to run it on Dask. But I can’t figure out what I need to do to tell Prefect Server to use Dask as the execution engine. I suspect I have to deal with Prefect Agent configs, but I’m not 100% sure. Any help is much appreciated! 🙂

Hi Alessandro, you can set the executor for a flow run that is orchestrated by the server in the Flow's environment. More information here: and
