Hello all, I'm currently working as Data Engineer and I'm intrested in Prefect as the main workflow management system in my team. Prefect's pros are numerous but user management is only available in the Cloud version. In my case, some dataflows must run inhouse and without user management is really difficult to include Prefect in our stack. I'm wondering if Prefect Team have considered adding Team Settings in the UI of Prefect Core. Thanks in advance

Hi @psimakis! User management/IAM is a Cloud-only feature. That said, it's worth shouting out that your dataflows would still run in-house if you used Prefect Cloud. All execution occurs on your infrastructure-- Cloud is responsible for orchestrating your work from afar. Here's a link describing our model if it's at all helpful!

Welcome @psimakis! Here’s a blog that goes into more detail about how our hybrid execution model works. It was designed to enable use cases exactly like yours, where data can not leave customer infrastructure:
