A question on the ECS Deployment block: • Is it possible to have an agent run in one AWS account (centrally), but have that agent schedule ECS Task in other accounts, so other ECS clusters? This is all assuming of course that the trust relationship between the accounts exists. • Why? Because running 20+ agents in different accounts turns the whole setup from being nicely flexible (“serverless”) into a cost nightmare. We set up multiple accounts and were hoping that the central account would succeed in scheduling the tasks in the other accounts, but got straight-up submission errors in the UI:

Submission failed.

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception: RuntimeError: Failed to run ECS task, cluster 'prefect' not found. Confirm that the cluster is configured in your region.
Edit Bonus Question: How would you debug this kind of issue? The main AWS exceptions seems to be suppressed unfortunately…
There is an article I think on this issue - https://discourse.prefect.io/t/clusternotfoundexception-when-using-ecsagent/733/2 Generally account shouldn’t matter , but I would rule out Prefect here first - can you run
aws ecs list-clusters
and see the other accounts clusters. If you can’t, then I would expect it to be an AWS / permissions issue first
aws ecs list-clusters
and all of the AWS cli is on a per account basis, right? So it will only ever show the clusters from the active profile. Here’s the result from one of the accounts.

Can you confirm that an agent in cluster A can in principal schedule tasks on a different cluster? I briefly skimmed over the source code and it seemed unlikely, that that was possible…
