The Insights scripting environment is available in Insights Enterprise and Insights Local.
The scripting environment is currently in beta, but it is publicly available to all Insights Enterprise users.
A Jupyter Kernel Gateway connection allows you to access kernels within the Insights scripting environment, where you can create and execute Python and R scripts. The connections you create will exist within a single workbook session only. Therefore, you will need to create a new connection every time you open a workbook.
You must set up a Jupyter Kernel Gateway before you can create a connection to the gateway.
Create a connection
Use the following steps to create a new connection to a kernel gateway:
- Open a workbook. Select data you want to add to your workbook, if necessary.
You can also load data from within the scripting environment.
- Click the Scripting button on the workbook toolbar.
If you have no existing connections, the New Jupyter Kernel Gateway connection window opens.
- Enter the URL and web socket addresses for your Jupyter Kernel Gateway in the text boxes.
- Click Connect.
After your connection is created, you can use the Select Kernel menu to choose a programming language (Python or R) and start using the console.
Edit a connection
If you've already created a connection in your current session, click the Scripting button to open the Jupyter Kernel Gateway window. You can connect to a different gateway using the Switch Connections button .
