Launch a Session

Sessions allow you to perform actions such as run R or Python code. They also provide access to an interactive command prompt and terminal. This topic demonstrates how to launch a new session.

  1. Navigate to your project's Overview page.
  2. Click New Session.
  3. Check the settings for Engine Image, Editor, Engine Kernel, and Engine Profile.
  4. Click Launch Session.
    The command prompt at the bottom right of your browser window will turn green when the engine is ready. Sessions typically take between 10 and 20 seconds to start.
