Hello Team, I sub-classed PostrgresTask, to provide db connection details, to provide values from configuration, and got problem with argument
when prefect calls to run method

There is no problem when flow is running locally, but when it runs in k8s jobs, it fails
Copy code
Unexpected error: TypeError("run() got multiple values for argument 'fetch'")
Traceback (most recent call last):

Sub-classe is pretty straightforward
Copy code
class JobsExtract(PostgresFetch):

    def __init__(
        play_type: str,
        is_enabled: bool = True,
        db_name: str = None,
        user: str = None,
        host: str = None,
        port: int = None,
        query: str = None

        self.play_type  = play_type
        self.query      = query or f"SELECT play_id, target_page FROM {self.play_type} WHERE is_enabled = { 'TRUE' if is_enabled else 'FALSE' }"
        logger.debug("Query for plays: <%s>", self.query)

        self.db_name = db_name or settings.DATABASE.name
        self.user    = user or settings.DATABASE.user
        self.host    = host or settings.DATABASE.host
        self.port    = port or settings.DATABASE.port
        self.password= settings.DATABASE.pswd
        self.fetch   = "all"

        super(JobsExtract, self).__init__(

    def run(self):
        result = super(JobsExtract, self).run(
        logger.debug("Query returned <%s> results", len(result))
        return result
I guess, problem is realted to
Copy code
@defaults_from_attrs("fetch", "fetch_count", "query", "data", "commit")
    def run(
        fetch: str = "one",
        fetch_count: int = 10,
        query: str = None,
        data: tuple = None,
        commit: bool = False,
        password: str = None,
any ideas? how to get it work?
Hi! I’m not sure I see how this could fail. Since it’s working locally it seems like it might be possible the newest code isn’t on K8s?
Well, I solved it by sub-classing Task class, and implemented functionality by myself
