What is the new airflow_settings.yaml file for?


I see this Skipping Settings Creation: airflow_settings.yaml not found... message on astro airflow start and I now I’m curious about this file.

It’s something for overriding the airflow.cfg?



@edbizarro Check out this page on our CLI repo for a breakdown of that file and how you can use it to generate Connections, Pools, and Variables via astro airflow start directly from our CLI.

Note that it’s unrelated to airflow.cfg - it’ll get injected as connection/pools/variables that are stored in the database (e.g. the Variables you have access to in the Airflow UI).


Thanks @paola for the explanation, that’s very useful!
