Configuring this Kit for use


In this Kit, there are three river variables that are used to make for dynamic use of the kit configuration. These variables are all within the ‘Databricks – Job Trigger Multi’ River.

River Variables:

  • {workspace_databricks} – is used to identify your Databricks instance. You can use this documentation to find your workspace ID. 
  • {token_databricks} – is used to authenticate your request within your account. You can use this documentation to create your personal access token. 
  • {jobrequest_databricks} – should be in a JSON format and is used to identify your Databricks' Job and parameters. You can find more information about what this looks like here. If you'd like a basic outline you can use the sample below to simply trigger a single job: 

    "job_id": {job_id},
    "queue": {
    "enabled": true

To initialize the river variables, go into the ‘Databricks – Job Trigger Multi’ river and select the variable menu on the top right. You can then populate the values with the associated values.
