You are viewing an outdated version of the documentation.

This documentation is for an older version (1.4.7) of Dagster. You can view the version of this page from our latest release below.

Dagster UI#

The Dagster UI is a web-based interface for viewing and interacting with Dagster objects.

You can inspect op, job, and graph definitions, launch runs, view launched runs, and view assets produced by those runs.

Launching the UI#

The easiest way to launch the UI from the command line during local development is to run:

dagster dev

This command launches both the Dagster webserver (which serves the UI) and the Dagster daemon, allowing you to start a full local deployment of Dagster from the command line.

The command will print out the URL you can access the UI from in the browser, usually on port 3000.

When invoked, the UI will fetch definitions - such as assets, jobs, schedules, sensors, and resources - from a Definitions object in a Python module or package or the code locations configured in an open source deployment's workspace files. Refer to the Code location documentation for more info.

You can also launch the webserver by itself from the command line by running:


Note that several Dagster features, like schedules and sensors, require the Dagster daemon to be running in order to function.

These are the main pages inside the UI:


The Job page offers tools to explore a job definition and launch runs for that job.

Overview tab#

The Overview tab shows the graph of ops that make up a job.
