Hi everyone. I am learning how to use Prefect 1.0 at the moment. I am building out a very basic flow and that needs to retry given some condition. ` I started down the path of trying the
raise signals.RETRY
signal but the task ends up going into a tight loop. I decorated the
@Task
with
max_retries
and
retry_delay
but the retry is still repeating rapidly and without any delay. ` Is the
RETRY
signal controlled by the
@Task
decorations
max_retries
and
retry_delay
?

You shouldn’t have to raise retry manually I think. Try raising an error instead and it should enter the retry loop.
raise ValueError
for example.

Ian, if you are just getting started, you may check out Prefect 2.0

Thank you @Kevin Kho - I will give that a shot.
@Anna Geller - thank you for the info on V1 vs V2... I will talk to the team and see what they say. I initially we were looking for stability.
