Hi @Avinash_Nair and welcome to the Dataiku Community. At this time DSS installation on Apple M1 MacBooks is not supported. We currently do not have an ETA for a compatible release. More information about M1 compatibility with DSS can be found on these threads: DSS fail to install on Mac M1DSS stratup failed 

If this is the first time you are trying out DSS and would still like to use it, we encourage you to use Dataiku Online with a 14 day free trial

This is a known limitation due to python compilation issues (not really DSS but still). Based on the community thread, you can try to workaround this by installing the Rosetta emulator:

Also, you can try an option with base Python3.7 for 


<DSS_INSTALL_DIR>/ -d <DSS_DATA_DIR> -P python3.7


I hope this helps!

@CoreyS Is the development team working on an official release for Apple Silicon? Since the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are quite powerful, and a lot of developers are switching to Mac again, it would be nice to have an official release of Dataiku.


I second this too. My new M1 Max is waiting to get Dataiku installed!
