Mark programatically a dataset as built


How to mark programatically a dataset as built?

For instance, I need to create a managed MySQL dataset, write some data to it, and mark it programatically in the flow as "built". Is is there any dataset parameter modifiable by a user through Python API?

# Create empty dataset.
client = dataiku.api_client()
project = client.get_project(dataiku.default_project_key())
builder = project.new_managed_dataset_creation_helper("mydatasetname")
dataset = builder.create()

# Compute dataset output as Pandas dataframe.
dataframe = myfunction(inputs)

# Write output to the dataset.
output_handler = dataiku.Dataset(dataset)

### How to change the dataset property in GUI flow to 'built'?

Hi Marek.

I don't know if this will serve your purpose, but you can mark datasets as "explicit build only"


See dataset > settings > advanced > rebuild behaviour.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your response. Actually my question is not about managing the dataset marking with GUI, but programatically i.e. how to change the marking within a Python script.
