Subject Re: Dynamically adding DAGs to Airflow
Date Sat, 09 May 2020 05:27:38 GMT
Airflow will continue to periodically look for new dags when running ---
whether dynamic or otherwise.

Does your dag show up when you do airflow list_dags?  Then it will show up
in webserver sooner or later.  If it does not, then it's likely something
is wrong with your dag file.

There has been talk of changing airflow's behavior of automatically parsing
every dag over and over.  This could reduce unnecessary processing and make
"expensive" dynamic dags feasible, but I don't think this has been
implemented yet.
