Prefect Release 2.7.2 Announcement
# announcements
a
Hi everyone! šŸ‘‹ Prefect 2.7.2 is here prefect2 cloud2 This release extends the recently added *pause*/*resume* feature with rescheduling of paused flow runs. You can now pass the
reschedule=True
argument to the
pause_flow_run
utility to gracefully stop the infrastructure process and put the flow run back into a
Scheduled
state. This way, you can free up the infrastructure resources instead of keeping the original flow run process running while waiting for approval.
šŸ’” Note that: this kind of rescheduling pauses works only with flow runs created from deployments and requires results persistence using either the
persist_result=True
option on the flow decorator, or by setting it globally:
prefect config set PREFECT_RESULTS_PERSIST_BY_DEFAULT='True'
You can now also manually pause a flow run in progress using the new Pause button directly from the flow run UI page (see the screenshot below). Resuming a run can be performed also from the UI, or from code:
Copy code
from prefect import resume_flow_run, pause_flow_run

id_ = "pasy_your_flow_run_uuid_here"
pause_flow_run(id_, timeout=4200, reschedule=True)

# once you're ready to resume (you can do it from the UI, too):
resume_flow_run(id_)
Other enhancements and improvements in this release: ā€¢ Two new Prefect Collections: prefect-kubernetes kubernetes and prefect-bitbucket šŸŖ£ ā€¢ Task Run Concurrency UI page now includes details and shows active task runs currently using allocated concurrency slots (see the second screenshot) ā€¢ New Opsgenie notifications block - kudos to Julien Lutran for contributing! gratitude thank you ā€¢ Fixes to imports and their performance ā€¢ New
SecretDict
block field that allows to obfuscate nested values in a dictionary on blocks such as
GcpCredentials
or
FugueEngine
ā€¢ If you have a flow call (e.g.
myflow()
) in your flow script, not protected by an
if __name__ == "__main__:
block, any run from that deployment will now work without giving you a warning about that unprotected call ā€¢ Several documentation improvements incl. new
with_options
usage examples, recipe and tutorial references, Automations docs, and more! For all enhancements and fixes, check the release notes - it even includes a Marvin joke. marvin duck Happy engineering! šŸŽ„prefect duck
