flytekit.approve(upstream_item, name, timeout)[source]

Create a Gate object for binary approval.

Create a Gate object. This object will function like a task. Note that unlike a task, each time this function is called, a new Python object is created. If a workflow calls a subworkflow twice, and the subworkflow has a signal, then two Gate objects are created. This shouldn’t be a problem as long as the objects are identical.

  • upstream_item (Tuple[Promise] | Promise | VoidPromise) – This should be the output, one output, of a previous task, that you want to gate execution on. This is the value that you want a human to check before moving on.

  • name (str) – The name of the gate node.

  • timeout (timedelta) – How long to wait before Flyte fails the workflow.
