    Hi - when we cancel a flow from Prefect Cloud it appears the jobs/tasks within continue to run. Are we misunderstanding something here?

    Hi Arlo - unfortunately we learned this feature wasn’t working as expected and so we are currently in the process of redesigning it. Right now “cancelling” a flow run is purely a bookkeeping action and does not tear down the flow run itself - apologies for the confusion

    ah! I see. Hmm ok.
    So @Chris White - in practice, a
    cancellation
    doesn’t really do anything other than mark as cancelled in the UI. I.e. anything the flow/tasks within were doing can be assumed to be still going?
    @Kostas Chalikias - FYI.

    That is correct as of today; we do have planned work to address this but I don’t expect it to be out for a bit
