CLI (v2) import schedule YAML schema

APPLIES TO: Azure CLI ml extension v2 (current)

The source JSON schema can be found at https://azuremlschemas.azureedge.net/latest/schedule.schema.json.

Note

The YAML syntax detailed in this document is based on the JSON schema for the latest version of the ML CLI v2 extension. This syntax is guaranteed only to work with the latest version of the ML CLI v2 extension. You can find the schemas for older extension versions at https://azuremlschemasprod.azureedge.net/.

YAML syntax

Key Type Description Allowed values
$schema string The YAML schema.
name string Required. Name of the schedule.
version string Version of the schedule. If omitted, Azure Machine Learning autogenerates a version.
description string Description of the schedule.
tags object Dictionary of tags for the schedule.
trigger object The trigger configuration to define rule when to trigger job. One of RecurrenceTrigger or CronTrigger is required.
import_data object or string Required. The definition of the import data action that a schedule has triggered. One of string or ImportDataDefinition is required.

Trigger configuration

Recurrence trigger

Key Type Description Allowed values
type string Required. Specifies the schedule type. recurrence
frequency string Required. Specifies the unit of time that describes how often the schedule fires. minute, hour, day, week, month
interval integer Required. Specifies the interval at which the schedule fires.
start_time string Describes the start date and time with timezone. If start_time is omitted, the first job will run instantly, and the future jobs trigger based on the schedule, saying start_time will match the job created time. If the start time is in the past, the first job runs at the next calculated run time.
end_time string Describes the end date and time with timezone. If end_time is omitted, the schedule runs until it's explicitly disabled.
timezone string Specifies the time zone of the recurrence. If omitted, by default is UTC. See appendix for timezone values
pattern object Specifies the pattern of the recurrence. If pattern is omitted, the job(s) is triggered according to the logic of start_time, frequency and interval.

Recurrence schedule

Recurrence schedule defines the recurrence pattern, containing hours, minutes, and weekdays.

  • When frequency is day, pattern can specify hours and minutes.
  • When frequency is week and month, pattern can specify hours, minutes and weekdays.
Key Type Allowed values
hours integer or array of integer 0-23
minutes integer or array of integer 0-59
week_days string or array of string monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday

CronTrigger

Key Type Description Allowed values
type string Required. Specifies the schedule type. cron
expression string Required. Specifies the cron expression to define how to trigger jobs. expression uses standard crontab expression to express a recurring schedule. A single expression is composed of five space-delimited fields:MINUTES HOURS DAYS MONTHS DAYS-OF-WEEK
start_time string Describes the start date and time with timezone. If start_time is omitted, the first job will run instantly and the future jobs trigger based on the schedule, saying start_time will match the job created time. If the start time is in the past, the first job runs at the next calculated run time.
end_time string Describes the end date and time with timezone. If end_time is omitted, the schedule continues to run until it's explicitly disabled.
timezone string Specifies the time zone of the recurrence. If omitted, by default is UTC. See appendix for timezone values

Import data definition (preview)

Important

This feature is currently in public preview. This preview version is provided without a service-level agreement, and we don't recommend it for production workloads. Certain features might not be supported or might have constrained capabilities.

For more information, see Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews.

Customer can directly use import_data: ./<data_import>.yaml or can use the following properties to define the data import definition.

Key Type Description Allowed values
type string Required. Specifies the data asset type that you want to import the data as. It can be mltable when importing from a Database source, or uri_folder when importing from a FileSource. mltable, uri_folder
name string Required. Data asset name to register the imported data under.
path string Required. The path to the datastore that takes in the imported data, specified in one of two ways:

- Required. A URI of datastore path. Only supported URI type is azureml. For more information on how to use the azureml:// URI format, see Core yaml syntax. To avoid an over-write, a unique path for each import is recommended. To do this, parameterize the path as shown in this example - azureml://datastores/<datastore_name>/paths/<source_name>/${{name}}. The "datastore_name" in the example can be a datastore that you have created or can be workspaceblobstore. Alternately a "managed datastore" can be selected by referencing as shown: azureml://datastores/workspacemanagedstore, where the system automatically assigns a unique path.
Azure Machine Learning://<>
source object External source details of the imported data source. See Attributes of the source for the set of source properties.

Attributes of source (preview)

Key Type Description Allowed values Default value
type string The type of external source from where you intend to import data from. Only the following types are allowed at the moment - Database or FileSystem Database, FileSystem
query string Define this value only when the type defined above is database The query in the external source of type Database that defines or filters data that needs to be imported.
path string Define this value only when the type defined above is FileSystem The folder path of the folder in the external source of type FileSystem where the file(s) or data that needs to be imported resides.
connection string Required. The connection property for the external source referenced in the format of azureml:<connection_name>

Remarks

The az ml schedule command can be used for managing Azure Machine Learning models.
