Hi, I'm trying to find out how I can set up a flow that depends on some other flow , but where the other flow is defined elsewhere say in a separate repo. Can I for example reference the flow id in the dependent flow? Or how should I do that?
It would be easiest if you had a parent flow that triggered the children flows so that you have the flow id. Have you seen this page?

This collects the state of the flow that needs to run first?
flow_a = create_flow_run(flow_name="A", project_name="examples")
Maybe a different but related question: if I have a continuous loop that stores some state and some other process picks up that state in a separate flow. Is there a way to automatically check how old the state is of the first flow? Ideally I would like to know that the state of the first process is up-to-date (definition depends a bit on the individual case)
@Kevin Kho I think I missed that page. Thanks!
flow_a will be an id there. not a state. you need wait_for_flow_run to get the state. There is an argument like raise_final_state
maybe you can write the update time of the state in the KV Store ?
Let me think about that. Thanks!
I can't use the completed time of the Loop task (referring to the prefect 1 setup atm)
You can if you query it from the GraphQL API
