Step 3: Start a workspace

Workspace sessions are interactive sessions hosted by a Domino executor where you can interact with code notebooks like Jupyter and RStudio. The software tools and associated configurations available to you are called Workspaces.

For this tutorial, we will start a Rstudio Workspace.

  1. Click on Workspaces from the project menu.
  2. Select Rstudio.
  3. Click Launch Rstudio Workspace.

When you launch a workspace, a new containerized session is created on a machine (also known as an executor) in the required hardware tier. The workspace tool you requested is launched in that container, and your browser is automatically redirected to the workspace’s UI when it’s ready.

Once your workspace is up and running, you will see a fresh Rstudio interface. If you’re brand new to Rstudio, you might find the Rstudio intro and cheatsheet helpful.

If you are interested in adding additional Workspaces for tools that are available by default, see the pluggable notebooks section of your Domino environment documentation.
