1. How does Qubole Package Management pick a library version? Is it dependent on the Conda version or does it pick the latest version?ΒΆ

QDS Package Management (PM) only does a conda install <package>. If this fails, then it does a pip install <package>. If you mention a specific version of package while adding it, the PM installs that version. Otherwise, Conda does its own calculation in picking the version that is compatible with the other existing installations in the PM environment.

Note

PM uses the R channel to install the R packages.

Using QDS Package Management describes how to use the Package Management to create an environment and add or remove packages using the UI. Add Packages to the Package Management Environment describes how to add packages in a PM environment using the API.
