Upload file from local to the server

Hi ,

I have dataiku install in the server, and I would like to upload some setup file (Jar files or jaon file) from my local machine to the dss server using dataiku. 
i know I could use scp from my local, however, I would like to create dataiku  macros to automate this activity.

Hi,

By security design, DSS (and the server hosting it) does not have remote access to your local machine.

Could you please detail what type of setup file you want to push to the DSS server? 

Best regards,

Alex

Hi Alex,  

Our servers have no connection to internet. Therefore, I want to push Jar files for spark-scala. this activity is not just one time, we need to push spark-scala packages whenever, we need new packages. 

Because of that, I want to automate this activity without having admin user get in the server in scp to folder.

Hi,

You could upload to a managed folder and (as a plugin developer) write a macro that copies the file from the managed folder to a directory of your choosing on the server. The DSS administrator still needs to add JARs from this directory in the Spark configuration.
