Manage a Workforce (Amazon SageMaker Console) - Amazon SageMaker

Manage a Workforce (Amazon SageMaker Console)

You can use the Amazon SageMaker console to create and manage the work teams and individual workers that make up a private workforce.

Use a work team to assign members of your private workforce to a labeling or human review job. When you create your workforce using the Amazon SageMaker console, there is a work team called Everyone-in-private-workforce that enables you to assign your entire workforce to a job. Because an imported Amazon Cognito user pool may contain members that you don't want to include in your work teams, a similar work team is not created for Amazon Cognito user pools.

You have two choices to create a new work team:

  • You can create a work team in the Amazon SageMaker console and add members from your workforce to the team.

  • You can create a user group by using the Amazon Cognito console and then create a work team by importing the user group. You can import more than one user group into each work team. You manage the members of the work team by updating the user group in the Amazon Cognito console. See Manage a Private Workforce (Amazon Cognito Console) for more information. 

Create a Work Team Using the Amazon SageMaker Console

You can create a new Amazon Cognito user group or import an existing user group using the Amazon SageMaker console, on the Labeling workforces page. For more information on creating a user group in the Amazon Cognito console, see Manage a Private Workforce (Amazon Cognito Console).

To create a work team using the Amazon SageMaker console

  1. Open the Amazon SageMaker console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/sagemaker/

  2. Choose Labeling workforces from the left menu.

  3. Under Private, choose Create private team.

  4. Under Team details, enter a Team name. The name must be unique in your account in an AWS Region.

  5. Under Add workers, choose a method to add workers to the team using a user group.

    • If you chose Create a team by adding workers to a new Amazon Cognito user group, select the workers to add to the team.

    • If you chose Create a team by importing existing Amazon Cognito user groups, choose the user groups that are part of the new team.

  6. If you select an SNS topic, all workers added to the team are subscribed to the Amazon SNS topic and notified when new work items are available to the team. Select from a list of your existing Ground Truth related Amazon SNS topics or select Create new topic to open a topic-creation dialog.

    Amazon SNS notifications are supported by Ground Truth and are not supported by Augmented AI. If you subscribe workers to receive SNS notifications, they only receive notifications about Ground Truth labeling jobs. They do not receive notifications about Augmented AI tasks.

Workers in a workteam subscribed to a topic receive notifications when a new Ground Truth labeling job for that team becomes available and when one is about to expire.

Read Create and manage Amazon SNS topics for your work teams for more information about using Amazon SNS topic.

Subscriptions

After you have created a work team, you can see more information about the team and change or set the Amazon SNS topic to which its members are subscribed by visiting the Amazon Cognito console. If you added any team members before you subscribed the team to a topic, you need to manually subscribe those members to that topic. Read Create and manage Amazon SNS topics for your work teams for more information on creating and managing the Amazon SNS topic.

Add or Remove Workers
