Call for testers: RStudio and Jupyter Sandboxes

We have been working on RStudio and Jupyter Notebook sandboxes (these are the missing sandboxes for R and Python transformations) for some time and we now feel that it is time to move to the next phase. 

We can now enable these on a per-user basis for early adopters. If you are interested in playing with these Sandboxes please contact us at (don't forget to tell us your KBC email).


  • Sandboxes are available only as plain sandboxes (not in a transformation bucket yet)
  • HTTPS is not yet supported.
  • Sandbox disk space is limited to 10GB.
  • Memory is limited to 8GB.
  • The UI allows loading only tables to the Sandbox. Loading input files and transformation script is supported only by the API.
  • Sandboxes will be deleted after 5 days.
  • Adding data to existing sandboxes is not supported.

Otherwise, it's like RStudio connected to your KBC project:

The CSV file locations are the same as in transformations (/data/in/tables/). In the meantime, we will work on:

  • HTTPS Support.
  • Creating better UI and integration with transformations.
  • Allowing tables and files to be added to a running sandbox.
