Is it possible to run multiple flows from the same docker image? I’m using a docker agent and have multiple flows with the same set of dependencies. So I wanted all the flows to use the same docker image with different tasks and parameters per flow. When I run register the flows, each register call builds and pushes a docker image for that flow which will start to add up once I have more than a few flows. Is there a way to ask the flow/storage to check if a docker image exists already and only create if it doesn’t exist?

Yes this is possible! You can build the image with multiple flows, and then push it once. After which you can register the flows. I originally found this example

Agreed with @Joël Luijmes here and I'd add that you could also use the ability to extend Docker images to build yourself a base image that includes those assets that change with less frequency and then extend that image with each of your flows.

thanks for the sample! I’m definitely going to build a base image with the dependencies and then a second layer image with the individual tasks I need.
@Joël Luijmes How do you do this with run_configs. I saw that environments are deprecated and I’m getting this error
Failed to load and execute Flow's environment: KeyError('<FlowName>')
I’m trying to use docker storage on a vm if that helps.
Was able to just use run_configs instead of environments and got it running
