Amazon SageMaker Studio UI Overview

Amazon SageMaker Studio extends the JupyterLab interface. Previous users of JupyterLab will notice the similarity of the user interface, including the workspace. Studio adds many additions to the interface. The most prominent additions are detailed in the following sections. For an overview of the basic JupyterLab interface, see The JupyterLab Interface.

The following image shows SageMaker Studio with the file browser open and the Studio Launcher displayed.

At the top of the screen is the menu bar. At the left of the screen is the left sidebar which contains icons to open file browsers, resource browsers, and tools. At the right of the screen is the right sidebar, represented by the Settings icon ( ), which displays contextual property settings when open. At the bottom of the screen is the status bar.

Above the Settings icon, there's a button to provide feedback about your experiences with SageMaker Studio.

To the left of the Feedback button there's the notification icon. Choose the icon to view notifications from Studio such as new Studio versions and new SageMaker features. To update to a new version of Studio, see Shut Down and Update SageMaker Studio and Studio Apps.

The main work area is divided horizontally into two panes. The left pane is the file and resource browser. The right pane contains one or more tabs for resources such as notebooks, terminals, metrics, and graphs.

Left sidebar

The left sidebar includes the following icons. When you hover over an icon, a tooltip displays the icon name. When you choose an icon, the file and resource browser displays the described functionality. For hierarchical entries, a selectable breadcrumb at the top of the browser shows your location in the hierarchy.
