When you try to connect to a different PREFECT_API_URL e.g. by switching profile, Prefect will give you a warning it it cannot reach the API set in your profile (you can inspect this configuration in
prefect profile use dev
When your active profile points to a Cloud workspace, but you are trying to connect to a local Orion API, the UI will also give you a warning.
[profiles.default] PREFECT_API_URL = "http://127.0.0.1:4200/api" [profiles.dev] PREFECT_API_URL = "https://api.prefect.cloud/api/accounts/xxx/workspaces/yyy"
Switching the profile to default (pointing to a local API) and refreshing the UI should solve the issue:
prefect profile use default
