MLInstances endpoint

An MLInstance is a pairing of an existing Engine with an appropriate set of configurations that defines any training parameters, scoring parameters, or hardware resource configurations.

Create an MLInstance

You can create an MLInstance by performing a POST request while providing a request payload consisting of a valid Engine ID ({ENGINE_ID}) and an appropriate set of default configurations.

If the Engine ID references a PySpark or Spark Engine then you have the ability to configure the amount of computation resources such as the number of cores or the amount of memory. If a Python Engine is referenced then you can choose between using either a CPU or GPU for training and scoring purposes. Refer to the appendix sections on PySpark and Spark resource configurations and Python CPU and GPU configurations for more information.

Update an MLInstance

You can update an existing MLInstance by overwriting its properties through a PUT request that includes the target MLInstance’s ID in the request path and providing a JSON payload containing updated properties.

TIP

In order to ensure the success of this PUT request, it is suggested that first you perform a GET request to retrieve the MLInstance by ID. Then, modify and update the returned JSON object and apply the entirety of the modified JSON object as the payload for the PUT request.

The following sample API call will update an MLInstance’s training and scoring parameters while having these properties initially:

{
    "name": "A name for this MLInstance",
    "description": "A description for this MLInstance",
    "engineId": "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
