Managing software environments¶
Managing software environments involves four pieces of functionality: creating new software environments, updating existing software environments, listing available software environments, and deleting software environments.
Creating software environments is discussed in detail in the Creating software environments page. The other software management operations are discussed here.
Updating software environments¶
You can update an existing software environment, for example to add a new conda
package, by calling
coiled.create_software_environment with the name of the
software environment you want to update and the new specification for the
If the inputs to
coiled.create_software_environment have changed since the
last time it was called for a given software environment, the corresponding
software environment will be rebuilt using the new inputs and any future uses of
the software environment will use the updated version. Repeated calls to
coiled.create_software_environment with the same inputs are a no-op.
You can’t update the software environment being used on an already running cluster. The cluster must first be closed and then restarted to use any updates made to a software environment.
Listing software environments¶
coiled.list_software_environments() function will list all available
There is also a
account= keyword argument which lets you specify the account
which you want to list software environments for.
Deleting software environments¶
coiled.delete_software_environment() function can be used to delete
individual software environments. For example:
will delete the software environment named “my-conda-env” in the Coiled account named “alice”.
