This topic describes how to perform basic operations on projects by using PyODPS.
A project is the basic organizational unit of MaxCompute. For more information, see Project.
- Obtain a project: You can call the
get_project()method of a MaxCompute entry object to obtain a specific project.
project = o.get_project('my_project') # Obtain the specified project. project = o.get_project() # Obtain the current project.
To obtain a specific project, you must set the project_name parameter to the name of the project for the get_project() method. If you do not specify a project name for the method, the method returns the current project.
- Check whether a project exists: You can call the
exist_project()method to check whether a specific project exists.
