How to make a clean uninstall of DSS on Mac?
Hi,

How can I delete Data Science Studio application and all the settings file on Mac OS X?
I want to start with a new fresh install.

Hi,

In a normal installation of Dataiku DSS on Mac OS X, two folders would be used:

    • /Applications/DataScienceStudio.app : it is the Data Science Studio application
    • ~/Library/DataScienceStudio : it is where DSS installs your settings, managed datasets, logs... (read more about the DATADIR)

 

Here is the clean uninstall process step-by-step:

    • Make sure that DSS is stopped
    • Open Finder, open the Applications folder.
    • Find DataScienceStudio and delete it.
    • Open Finder again, option-click the Go menu, hold down the Option key (alt key), click on Library.

    • Find DataScienceStudio and delete it.



To reinstall DSS from scratch, you can now download the DMG file on www.dataiku.com

FYI: on MacOS Sierra this is now SHIFT instead of Options/ALT.

Hi, 

I followed the instructions here, including deleting both the application (/Applications/DataScienceStudio.app) and the settings (~/Library/DataScienceStudio), then restarted. When I click on the app, I am able to download, extract, but get stuck on "installing." 

The logs show:

[2024-04-14 15:13:15.363 -0700] ERROR: The Dataiku DSS installer closed with code 1
Error: The Dataiku DSS installer closed with code 1

 There must be some stray setting somewhere. I've repeated the procedure above but end up with the same error

Updating this on the fix. Tried deleting both files again and restarting. That fixed the issue. I think there were some stray leftover config messing things up
