Run scenarios without run as

UserKp Registered Posts: 20


I have configured a scenario in Dataiku which is time based trigger to run every 15 seconds,in the run settings there is an option 'Run as" where we can see the list of those who are working in the project and select a name,is there any option to run without that option so that there is no dependency of the person,like it should trigger automatically without using Run as

    Hi @UserKp
    The Run As will need to either be last_author or an actual user ( only the admin can set a different user to run as)

    If the concern is that the user leaves you want to avoid the scenario from breaking you can use Python script to change run_as for all scenarios of that old user as part of of offboarding the user :

    import dataikuclient = dataiku.api_client()old_owner = 'username1'new_owner = 'username2'for project_key in client.list_project_keys():project = client.get_project(project_key)project_permission = project.get_permissions()if project_permission.get('owner') == old_owner:print("Changing ownership on project {0}".format(project_key))project_permission['owner'] = new_ownerproject.set_permissions(project_permission)for project_key in client.list_project_keys():project = client.get_project(project_key)for scenario in project.list_scenarios(as_type="objects"):settings = scenario.get_settings()if settings.effective_run_as == old_owner:print(f"Scenario used to run as {old_owner}, reassigning it")settings.run_as =

    Kind Regards,

    so I found this in the docs:

    for scenario in project.list_scenarios(as_type="objects"):settings = scenario.get_settings()if settings.effective_run_as == "u1":print("Scenario %s used to run as u1, reassigning it")# To configure a run_as, we must use the run_as property.# effective_run_as is read-onlysettings.run_as = "u2"

    Now I have configured scenarios to trigger everyday,how can I change its setting from this API?

    If you want to prevent issues with users leaving then create generic scenario runner accounts (basically a user account used for a shared objective) and use those to run your scenarios.
