Start a New Session

The first step to run a project in the workbench is to start a new session.

  1. Navigate to your project's Overview page.
  2. Click New Session.
    The information presented on this page will depend on which default engine you have chosen for your project: Runtime or Legacy Engines. You can change the default engine later in this task.
    The Start A New Session dialog box opens.
  3. Check the settings for your session:
    If your project is using ML Runtimes, you will see the following settings:
    Editor
    Selects the Editor; currently only Workbench is supported and therefore the selector is static.

    Version
