Creating Notebook Sessions

You create a notebook session to access a JupyterLab interface using a customizable compute, storage, and network configuration.

  1. Log into your tenancy with suitable policies.
  2. Open the navigation menu.
  3. Under Data and AI, select Data Sciences, and then click Projects.
  4. Select a compartment for the project.
  5. Click the name of the project to contain the notebook session.
  6. Click Create Notebook Session.
  7. Select the compartment that you want to contain the notebook session.
  8. (Optional, but recommended) Enter a unique name for the notebook session (limit of 255 characters). If you don't provide a name, a name is automatically generated for you. For example, datasciencenotebooksession20200108222435.
  9. Select one of theses Data Science supported shapes:
    Shape Family CPU or GPU Availability
    VM.Standard.E (with the exception of VM.Standard.E2.1) CPU All OC 1 regions
    VM.Standard2 CPU All OC 1 regions
    VM.GPU2.1 (NVIDIA P100) GPU US East (Ashburn) Germany Central (Frankfurt)
    VM.GPU3.X (NVIDIA V100) GPU US East (Ashburn) UK South (London) Japan East (Tokyo)
  10. Enter the block volume size you want to use between 50 GB and 1,024 GB (1 TB). You can change the value by 1 GB increments. The default value is 1024 GB. Persisting Data and Files on your Notebook Session Block Volume provides more details.
  11. Select the VCN compartment that contains the VCN that you want to use.
  12. Select the VCN that you want to use.
  13. Select the subnet compartment that contains the subnet that you want to use.
  14. Select the subnet that you want to use.
  15. (Optional) Add tags to the notebook session by selecting a tag namespace, then entering the key and the value. You can add more tags to the compartment by clicking +Additional Tags, see Working with Resource Tags.
  16. (Optional) View the details for your notebook session immediately after creation by selecting Display notebook session details after creation.
  17. Click Create.
You are advanced to the notebook sessions page. When it is complete, the status turns to active, and you can open the notebook session. The create notebook session action is asynchronous and initiates a work request. You can use the work request to track the status of an operation. For general information about using work requests in OCI, see Work Requests and the Work Requests API.
