Automatically create predefined flows with a plugin ?

Hello,

I'm currently writing a plugin with several recipes. They are meant to be used in a flow looking like this :

Managed Folder -> Plugin Recipe 1 -> Managed Folder -> Plugin Recipe 2 -> Dataset

Is there a way for me to add this flow in my plugin, so that a user can create this flow in his/her project with just one click ? (with a macro maybe ?). Managed folders and dataset should be empty, and recipes shouldn't be parametrized.

Thx for your help

    Hi,

    Yes, you can create a custom macro (in a plugin) that will create several recipes and datasets.
    Also, since Dataiku DSS 7.0, you also have Project creation macros.

    Alternatively, you could manually copy a sub flow (you select several items of a flow with SHIFT+click on the flow, you choose "Copy" in the right-side bar in "Actions").

    Also, in Dataiku DSS 8.0 (not yet released), you will have ways to share visually a project/flow that can be parametrized.
    Stay tuned!

    Hi @jereze
    ,

    Good to know that we can add recipes through macros !

    I just don't find it very clearly explained in the documentation : how can we write that we create recipes ? And are we forced to enter recipes' parameters, or can we leave them "blank" ?

    Also, I'm very excited to see the new features coming in DSS 8.0. Thank you for your work !

    Thx for your help
