Sharing Job and Session Console Outputs

Cloudera Data Science Workbench lets you easily share the results of your analysis with one click.

Using rich visualizations and documentation comments, you can arrange your console log so that it is a readable record of your analysis and results. This log continues to be available even after the session stops. This method of sharing allows you to show colleagues and collaborators your progress without your having to spend time creating a report.

To share results from an interactive session, click Share at the top of the console page. From here you can generate a link that includes a secret token that gives access to that particular console output. For jobs results, you can either share a link to the latest job result or a particular job run. To share the latest job result, click the Latest Run link for a job on the Overview page. This link will always have the latest job results. To share a particular run, click on a job run in the job's History page and share the corresponding link.

You can share console outputs with one of the following sets of users.
  • All anonymous users with the link - By default, Cloudera Data Science Workbench allows anonymous access to shared consoles. However, site administrators can disable anonymous sharing at any time by going to Admin > Security, disabling the Allow anonymous access to shared console outputs checkbox, and clicking Disable anonymous access to confirm.

    Once anonymous sharing has been disabled, all existing publicly shared console outputs will be updated to be viewable only by authenticated users.

  • All authenticated users with the link - This means any user with a Cloudera Data Science Workbench account will have access to the shared console.

  • Specific users and teams - Click Change to search for users and teams to give access to the shared console. You can also come back to the session and revoke access from a user or team the same way.

Sharing Data Visualizations

If you want to share a single data visualization rather than an entire console, you can embed it in another web page. Click the small circular 'link' button located to the left of most rich visualizations to view the HTML snippet that you can use to embed the visualization.
