After logging in, you’ll see the Jupyter page of the dashboard.
Choose a name, how much disk space you need, how much ram/cpu/gpu you want and hit Create. The Auto Shutoff parameter turns off Jupyter after your browser has disconnected. Click the play button to start the instance and depending on cluster resources, your Jupyter instance should be ready in 1-10 minutes.
Often the default image contains all the packages that you’ll need for your project. If that isn’t the case, then you can choose a different image (see Customizing Environments for details).
You can also tweak the setup of the project by adding a Start Script or Environment Variables. These settings are applied every time the jupyter server spins up.
Jupyter labextensionsIf you are relying on specific jupyter labextensions, those need to be added in the postBuild in the image. For more information see Customizing Environments.
Managing Jupyter Instances
On the Jupyter page we display all Jupyters that you have. There are links here that will take you to your Jupyter Notebook, as well as your Jupyter Lab.
After you’ve created a Jupyter, you might want to modify it. You can do this by clicking its name to modify it.
When Jupyter instances are active, you can only change the autoshutoff policy. If the node is off, you can change the image, as well as the size of the instance. Click “save” after you change have been made, and relaunch the instance to pick up the new changes.
