Using the Scala Shell

Currently, the Flink Scala shell for EMR clusters is only configured to start new YARN sessions. You can use the Scala shell by following the procedure below.

Using the Flink Scala shell on the master node

  1. Log in to the master node using SSH as described in Connect to the Master Node using SSH.

  2. Type the following to start a shell:

    In Amazon EMR version 5.5.0 and later, you can use:

    % flink-scala-shell yarn -n 1

    In earlier versions of Amazon EMR, use:

    % /usr/lib/flink/bin/ yarn -n 1

    This starts the Flink Scala shell so you can interactively use Flink. Just as with other interfaces and options, you can scale the -n option value used in the example based on the number of tasks you want to run from the shell.
