Use a Jupyter Notebook with a Run:AI Job

Once you launch a workload using Run:AI, you will want to connect to it. You can do so via command-line or via other tools such as a Jupyter Notebook

This document is about accessing the remote container created by Run:AI via such a notebook.

Submit a Workload

Run the following command to connect to the Jupyter Notebook container as if it were running local:

runai submit build-jupyter --jupyter -g 1

The terminal will show the following:

~> runai submit build-jupyter --jupyter -g 1
INFO[0001] Exposing default jupyter notebook port 8888
INFO[0001] Using default jupyter notebook image "jupyter/scipy-notebook"
INFO[0001] Using default jupyter notebook service type portforward
The job 'build-jupyter' has been submitted successfully
You can run `runai describe job build-jupyter -p team-a` to check the job status

  • The Job starts a Jupyter notebook container.
  • The connection is redirected to the local machine ( on port 8888

Browse to http://localhost:8888. Use the token in the output to log into the notebook.


The above flag --jupyter is a shortcut with a predefined image. If you want to run your own notebook, use the quickstart on running a build workload with connected ports.
