Hi, I am trying to execute a flyte workflow remotely as follows
Copy code
config ="./custom_flyte_config_local.yaml")

remote = FlyteRemote(config=config, default_domain=FLYTE_DEFAULT_DOMAIN, default_project=FLYTE_DEFAULT_PROJECT)

flyte_wf = remote.fetch_workflow(name="flyte.my_wf", version="v1")
wheni specify the config file like that
Copy code
# custom_flyte_config_local.yaml

  # For GRPC endpoints you might want to use dns:///
  endpoint: dns:///host.docker.internal:30080
  authType: Pkce
  insecure: true
  show-source: true
  level: 0
the service works fine and is able to fetch the right workflow. I want to be able to specify the endpoint in a environment variable instead of using a sperate config file. Like this or by specifying the env var in the dockerfile
Copy code
os.environ['FLYTE_PLATFORM_URL'] = 'dns:///host.docker.internal:30080'

config =
but this leads to the following error:

Any ideas on why this happens? even though the variable for endpoint should have the exact same value both ways.
