I've a managed folder under HDFS and want to create a subfolder under it but cannot find under the
API documentation the method or the function to do it. How can this be done ? It should be possible
because from the UI that is possible...
since the notion of folder does not exist for all connection types that you can put managed folders on (as in: it doesn't exist for cloud storages), the is no API to directly create directories inside managed folders. The directories are automatically created as needed when you write a file. For example calling https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/python-api/managed_folders.html#dataiku.Folder.upload_data with `upload_data("/subdir1/subdir2/stuff", )` will create the sub-directories subdir1 and subdir2 if they don't exist. You could write empty files to force directories to be created.
the upload_data() only exists in dataiku package. How can I do it outside of DSS? In the dataikuapi package there is no this method but put_file(). However put_file() doesn't create the subdirectory automatically like upload_data().
