Add Cloudera Machine Learning as an Interpreter for PyCharm

In PyCharm, you can configure an SSH interpreter. Cloudera Machine Learning uses this method to connect to PyCharm and act as its interpreter.

Before you begin, ensure that the SSH endpoint for Cloudera Machine Learning is running on your local machine. These instructions were written for the Professional Edition of PyCharm Version 2019.1 and are meant as a starting point. If additional information is required, see the documentation for your version of PyCharm for specific instructions.
  1. Open PyCharm.
