Accessing remote package repositories#

As an Administrator, you can configure Data Science & AI Workbench to use packages from an online package repository such as anaconda and r.

You can then mirror channels & packages into your organization’s internal Workbench repository

so users can access the packages from a centralized, on-premises location.

If users are permitted to install packages from off-site package repositories, you can make it easier for users to access them from within their editing sessions by configuring them as default channels.

To do so, edit your Workbench configurationanaconda-enterprise-anaconda-platform.yml—to include the appropriate channels, as follows:

  - defaults
  channel_alias: https://<ANACONDA_ENTERPRISE_FQDN>/repository/conda

To update Workbench with your changes to the configuration, restart its services:

sudo gravity enter
kubectl get pods | grep 'ap-' | cut -d' ' -f1 | xargs kubectl delete pods
