Install the Cloudera Data Science Workbench Parcel

Provides steps to install the Cloudera Data Science Workbench parcel.

  1. Log into the Cloudera Manager Admin Console.
  2. Click Hosts > Parcels in the main navigation bar.
  3. If you placed the Cloudera Data Science Workbench CSD in the default CSD directory, /opt/cloudera/csd, Cloudera Manager auto-detects and adds the parcel repository URL. Therefore, the parcel should already be present and ready for downloading.
    If for some reason the parcel is not available, add the remote parcel repository URL to Cloudera Manager.
    For detailed steps, click
    1. On the Parcels page, click Configuration.
    2. In the Remote Parcel Repository URLs list, click the addition symbol to open an additional row.
    3. Enter the path to the repository. Cloudera Data Science Workbench publishes placeholder parcels for other operating systems as well. However, note that these do not work and have only been included to support mixed-OS clusters.
      Version Remote Parcel Repository URL

    4. Click Save Changes.
    5. Go to the Hosts > Parcels page. The external parcel should now appear in the set of parcels available for download.
  4. Click Download. Once the download is complete, click Distribute to distribute the parcel to all the CDH hosts in your cluster. Then click Activate. For more detailed information on each of these tasks, see Managing Parcels.
    For airgapped installations, create your own local repository, put the Cloudera Data Science Workbench parcel there, and then configure the Cloudera Manager Server to target this newly-created repository.
