Sharing a Jupyter Notebook

Last Modified: November 20, 2020

Share Jupyter notebooks (.ipynb) with other SystemLink users for further analysis or to render notebook data correctly in a shared dashboard.

Before you can share a Jupyter notebook (.ipynb), you must save it on your machine. Custom Jupyter notebooks are initially saved to your security identifier (SID) folder of the Jupyter notebooks directory. Therefore, if you want to share a Jupyter notebook with others, you need to move the Jupyter notebook into the _shared directory on your machine.
  1. On your machine, navigate to your SID folder: C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\Skyline\JupyterHub\notebooks\<SID>.

    If you do not know your SID, open the Command Prompt and enter one of the following commands based on your situation.

    Scenario Command to enter
    You do not know your username. wmic useraccount get name,sid
    You do know your username. wmic useraccount where name="<username>" get sid
  2. Locate the Jupyter notebook you want to share and copy it.
  3. Navigate to the Jupyter notebooks _shared directory and paste your report in the folder. The file path to the _shared directory is C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\Skyline\JupyterHub\notebooks\_shared\reports.

    When you add a Jupyter notebook to the _shared directory, you make it accessible to every SystemLink user.
