This topic describes how to create an EMR Presto node. EMR Presto nodes allow you to perform interactive analysis and query on large-scale structured and unstructured data.


  • DataWorks is activated in the China (Shenzhen) region. You can create EMR Presto nodes only in the China (Shenzhen) region.
  • An E-MapReduce compute engine instance is added on the Workspace Management page. You can create EMR nodes on the DataStudio page only after an E-MapReduce compute engine instance is added. For more information, see Configure a workspace.
  • DataWorks Professional Edition or a more advanced edition is purchased so that you can bind an E-MapReduce compute engine instance to your DataWorks workspace.


  1. Go to the DataStudio page.
    1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
    3. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the target workspace resides. Find the target workspace and click Data Analytics in the Actions column.
  2. Move the pointer over Create icon and choose EMR > EMR Presto.
    You can also find the target workflow, right-click EMR, and then choose Create > EMR Presto.
  3. In the Create Node dialog box that appears, set Node Name and Location.
    Note The node name can be up to 128 characters in length and can contain letters, digits, underscores (_), and periods (.).
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the node configuration tab, enter the code.
    Note If the current workspace is bound to multiple E-MapReduce compute engine instances, you must select an E-MapReduce compute engine instance. If the current workspace is bound to only one E-MapReduce compute engine instance, you do not need to do so.
  6. Save and commit the node.
    Notice You need to set the node's re-run attribute and dependent upstream node to commit the node.
    1. Click Save iconicon to save the node.
    2. Click Commit dialog box in the toolbar.
    3. In submit New version dialog box, enter remarks.
    4. Click OK.
    In a workspace in the standard mode, you need to click Publish in the upper-right corner after you commit the real-time sync node. For more information, see Deploy a node.
  7. The test node. For more information, see Auto triggered nodes.
