👋 hey everyone, we're using release 1.9 and found that for flyte console, disabling a feature flag via
env var doesn't seem to work, but setting it to false via the URL parameter
works (found a related issue: 4047#issuecomment-1723528573) - wanted to check if this is a bug with the release
the motivation here from our side is that horizontal layout doesn't work well with the navigation bar:

Hey @Swarup Srinivasan. Thanks for posting this. I have a few questions: how are you setting the env variable? Do other Flyte console env vars work? Are you passing a custom navigation in? I don’t recognize the component from your screenshot. Your team may need to update it if it’s a custom nav bar.

thanks for your reply @Frank Flitton! • we set the env variable via container env variables • for the navbar, we pass in
env var with one item, and Flyte console ends up rendering a dropdown with
and the item we pass in ◦ I'm not sure how we can update this since it's rendered on the Flyte console side - I didn't see any updates to the readme:
