Seahorse on Trusted Analytics Platform

Table of Contents


Seahorse is a data analytics platform that allows you to create Spark applications using a web-based interactive user interface. You can use Seahorse on Trusted Analytics Platform.

Managing Seahorse Instances on TAP

Log in to your Trusted Analytics Platform deployment. Next, select Seahorse from Data Science category in the left panel. You will see a list of existing Seahorse instances. You can also create a new instance by typing in an instance name and clicking Create new Seahorse instance.

The Seahorse instances are bound to organization. Only users from given organization can access them.

Interacting with the Workflows List

After creating a Seahorse instance from Trusted Analytics Platform console, open it by navigating to the App Url in your browser.

If you are opening Seahorse instance and you are not logged into TAP, you will be redirected to TAP login page. Opening Seahorse for the first time may also show a screen, where you will have to grant permissions for Seahorse.

TAP login page TAP login page

On the main Seahorse page you will see the list of workflows created by the users from your organization and some example workflows. Each workflow has an owner - the user that created the workflow. Please note that you can view all the listed workflows, but you can only edit and run the workflows that you own.

If you found an interesting workflow, but you are not the owner, you can clone it by clicking the clone button button. Once the workflow is cloned you can edit and run it. You can also create new workflows from scratch by pressing the NEW WORKFLOW button.
