Function to upload new data to a DataRobot project for predictions

Share:

Description

The DataRobot prediction engine requires a CSV file containing the data to be used in prediction, and this has been implemented here in two ways. The first and simpler is to specify dataSource as the name of this CSV file, but for the convenience of those who wish to work with dataframes, this function also provides the option of specifying a dataframe, which is then written to a CSV file and uploaded to the DataRobot server.

Usage

1
UploadPredictionDataset(project, dataSource, maxWait = 60)

Arguments

project

Either (1) a character string giving the unique alphanumeric identifier for the project, or (2) a list containing the element projectId with this identifier.

dataSource

Either (a) the name of a CSV file (b) a dataframe or (c) url to publicly available file; in each case, this parameter identifies the source of the data for which predictions will be calculated.

maxWait

The maximum time (in seconds) to wait for each of two steps: (1) The initial dataset upload request, and (2) data processing that occurs after receiving the response to this initial request.
