Tutorial: Use a SageMaker Notebook with Your Development Endpoint

In AWS Glue, you can create a development endpoint and then create a SageMaker notebook to help develop your ETL and machine learning scripts. A SageMaker notebook is a fully managed machine learning compute instance running the Jupyter Notebook application.

The tutorial assumes that you have already taken the steps outlined in Tutorial Prerequisites.

  1. In the AWS Glue console, choose Dev endpoints to navigate to the development endpoints list.

  2. Select the check box next to the name of a development endpoint that you want to use, and on the Action menu, choose Create SageMaker notebook.

  3. Fill out the Create and configure a notebook page as follows:

    1. Enter a notebook name.

    2. Under Attach to development endpoint, verify the development endpoint.

    3. Create or choose an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role.

      Creating a role is recommended. If you use an existing role, ensure that it has the required permissions. For more information, see Step 6: Create an IAM Policy for SageMaker Notebooks.

    4. (Optional) Choose a VPC, a subnet, and one or more security groups.

    5. (Optional) Choose an AWS Key Management Service encryption key.

    6. (Optional) Add tags for the notebook instance.

  4. Choose Create notebook. On the Notebooks page, choose the refresh icon at the upper right, and continue until the Status shows Ready.

  5. Select the check box next to the new notebook name, and then choose Open notebook.

  6. Create a new notebook: On the jupyter page, choose New, and then choose Sparkmagic (PySpark).

    Your screen should now look like the following:

          The jupyter page has a menu bar, toolbar, and a wide text field into which you can
            enter statements.
  7. (Optional) At the top of the page, choose Untitled, and give the notebook a name.

  8. To start a Spark application, enter the following command into the notebook, and then in the toolbar, choose Run.


    After a short delay, you should see the following response:

          The system response shows Spark application status and outputs the following
            message: SparkSession available as 'spark'.
  9. Create a dynamic frame and run a query against it: Copy, paste, and run the following code, which outputs the count and schema of the persons_json table.

    import sys from pyspark.context import SparkContext from awsglue.context import GlueContext from awsglue.transforms import * glueContext = GlueContext(SparkContext.getOrCreate()) persons_DyF = glueContext.create_dynamic_frame.from_catalog(database="legislators", table_name="persons_json") print ("Count: ", persons_DyF.count()) persons_DyF.printSchema()
