hi all, what's the best way to have a flow that's only triggered via API call (i assume this is possible)? say we're using Prefect Cloud

Hi Daniel, schedules need to be configured and are not attached by default. Don't configure a schedule and you should be fine

thanks, what's the recommended way to trigger the flow run without using the UI? can this be done via the API?

Copy code
prefect run --name "name of flow"
https://docs.prefect.io/orchestration/flow-runs/creation.html#cli
I also attached some docs on creating flow runs.
There's also a section that covers creating a flow run through the imperative api if that's what you meant

You don’t even need Prefect installed. See this
