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

cool, thanks. That’s helpful
definitely +1 for this feature!
