@AdamNevin-8126 After checking the referenced thread I believe @PRADEEPCHEEKATLA-MSFT is referring to uploading your model folder to Azure ML workspace and register it as a model.
If you are using AML Model as seen in the
model_uri parameter above I think you need to navigate to ml.azure.com and register the model from the models tab. Then use the model name and appropriate version for the
AML_MODEL_URI env variable.
AML_MODEL_URI = "aml://test1:1"
If all the steps to register and authenticate the AML workspace mentioned in the earlier part of the document are run successfully then I think this should work.
