Intro and Purpose

This page is a comparison of existing capabilities in the classic CDAP UI, and new ways to do the same thing in the new UI

Target Audience and Usage Intent

User
Intent
Existing CDAP user
  • Is used to interacting with the CDAP UI using the classic UI. Would like to switch to the new UI

Behavior

  • To add your own entity (app, stream, pipeline, plugin, driver), use the plus button
  • To add an entity by browsing the Cask Market, use the Cask Market link in the global navbar
  • Overview page is for navigating/searching/finding your app, dataset or stream
  • For every entity, there are 3 views 
    • Card -> Used in Search Results and Listing views. Contains basic information and allows users to fast actions.
    • Overview pane -> More details than entity cards. Does not contain every single detail about the entity. Does not navigate away from the overview page
    • Detail page -> Dedicated page for an entity with a unique URL, has every single detail and action for the entity
  • Cask Hydrator has been moved under Pipelines in the top navigation bar
  • Cask Tracker has been moved under Metadata in the top navigation bar. Some previously Tracker functionality is also available in Dataset and Stream Detail Pages.
  • Information (versions, logs, metrics, instances) and actions (scaling, system preferences) on the CDAP system can be found on the Administration page. This page also contains information (versions, logs, web UI links, metrics) about some of the underlying systems that CDAP uses (HDFS, Yarn, HBase)
  • Access Token, About CDAP, Documentation are available in the CDAP dropdown on the top right.

Note: The new user experience does not have full feature parity with the classic CDAP UI yet. For missing features, please use the "Switch to Classic View" option from the CDAP dropdown on the top right.
