Programatically upload files to Cloudera Workbench Project

New Contributor

Hi all,


Is there any API for us to programmatically upload / put files onto a Cloudera Workbench Project? Thanks. 


I am not aware of any, but you could do it by ssh like we use to upload other files.

We would suggest using the Jobs function.  Jobs have an API, so they can be tasked externally to CDSW.


You can then wrap a shell script or python script with a Job to perform data file operations for example using wget, s3 sync etc.


Would this meet your requirements?  If not can you expand on your requirements further please?
