Question on state_handler, is there anyway to pass arguments to state_handler? I want to update database table when flow or task fails. The arguments are database config information and credentials

Not really.. You’d have to pull them from somewhere else. If they are secrets though, they might be available in
prefect.context.secrets
, parameters will be in
prefect.context.parameters
so you can pull those inside a state handler. Would that help you?

I think so, do you have example of storing and retrieving parameters and secrets?

Should just be like:
Copy code
def mystatehandler(obj, old_state, new_state):
    print(prefect.context.parameters)
    print(prefect.context.secrets)
    Secret("name").get()
and parameters is a dict. I think secrets might be a list (not super sure). But you can also pull a secret if you know the name with
Secret.get()
So you can do:
Copy code
print(prefect.context.parameters["x"])
