Using Airflow Webserver

Using Airflow's native web UI to view DBND pipelines.

You can also use Airflow's native web UI to view DBND pipelines. You have a couple options in using the UI:

  1. You can use DBND's entry point into Airflow using the dbnd-airflow webserver command.
  2. You can also use the airflow webserver command to access Airflow directly. This requires installing a DBND plugin for Airflow called airflow-versioned-dag. Install with the following command: pip install dbnd-airflow-versioned-dag.

The airflow-versioned-dag plugin enables you to save versions the DAG graph of every execution so that all runs are discoverable. This makes it easier to make iterations, improvements, and debug. On its own, Airflow will save the DAG graph of only the latest execution in the Airflow database.
