Set Project Defaults

You can set defaults for your project’s pipelines from the Console UI that are passed down to all pipeline specs. These defaults provide a consistent experience for your data scientists and help manage your project.

Before You Start

  • You must have a running HPE Machine Learning Data Management cluster and access to the Console UI, either locally our via IdP
  • Read the Global Config for information about Cluster Defaults

How to Set Project Defaults

  1. Log in to Console
  2. Navigate to the Project Dashboard homepage.
  3. Scroll to the project you wish to add defaults to and select View Project.
  4. Select Project Defaults from the sidebar.
  5. Input your desired default Pipeline Specification (PPS) settings in JSON format.
     "createPipelineRequest": {
       "resourceRequests": {
         "cpu": 1,
         "memory": "256Mi",
         "disk": "1Gi"
       "sidecarResourceRequests": {
         "cpu": 1,
         "memory": "256Mi",
         "disk": "10Gi"
  6. Optionally select the Prettify button to make the JSON more readable.
  7. Select Continue.
  8. Choose from one of the following options:
    • Save Project Defaults
      • Only new and edited pipelines apply the new defaults
      • No pipeline regeneration or datum reprocessing occurs
    • Save Project Defaults and Regenerate Pipelines
      • Only pipelines with impacted specs are regenerated
      • Previously processed datums are not reprocessed
    • Save Project Defaults, Regenerate Pipelines, and Reprocess Datums
      • Only pipelines with impacted specs are regenerated
      • Previously processed datums are reprocessed
  9. Select Save.

How to View Project Defaults Applied to a Pipeline

In addition to viewing Project Defaults directly from the sidebar inside a project, you can also view them from a pipeline.

  1. Log in to Console.
  2. Scroll to a project you wish to inspect and select View Project.
  3. Select a pipeline from the DAG.
  4. Select the Pipeline Actions dropdown and choose Update Pipeline
  5. Select the Project Defaults tab.
Project Defaults that have been overridden by user inputs have a user icon next to them in the Effective Spec view.
