Create Recipes

Data science recipes describe all of the steps taken in a project from data ingestion to transformation to analysis, and are recorded as step-by-step instructions that can be used to reproduce the state of a session. The recipe can then be edited, replayed, and shared as needed.

Recipes are similar to snapshots with a couple of key differences:

DefinitionA list of steps that can be loaded into different sessions.A collection of datasets from a session that can be loaded into different sessions.
Use CaseAutomate processes, share work with others, or save session state for later.Work with a cleaned version of data in an existing or new session.

Save a Recipe

To save your current session as a recipe, click Save in the sidebar. The Save form opens:

  1. Click Recipe.
  2. Enter a descriptive name for your new recipe. By default, the name of your session is used.
  3. Click Submit.

This saves your session as a recipe object, which you can access from the Recipes section on the homepage. Interim modifications to notes are not included in a saved recipe. All modifications to a note are captured in one Modify line.

To improve recipe replays, some skills are not included in saved recipes:

  • Collaborate on this recipe with <user>
  • Connect to the view <view name>
  • Create a new API <api name>
  • Export the current recipe to <file name>
    • the saved recipe <recipe name> to <file name>

  • Save the current chart as <name>
    • the current session as
    • the defined expressions to <file>
  • Share the connection <connection name>
    • the file <file name>
    • the recipe <recipe name>
