Added from version 0.11

The train-local command before version0.11 is debug-local. Has been renamed.


The training job definition version specified by --version is executed on the local environment.


In order to use the train-local command, docker must be installed.

-o, --organization_id, --organization-id

Specify the organization ID. Organization ID is registered in the environment variable with the key ABEJA_ORGANIZATION_ID. It can be referenced from the learning code to be executed.


Specify the learning job definition name.


Specify the path of the function to be called. If --handler main: handler is specified,handler defined in the file is called. If the file to call is placed directly under the src directory, it will be src.main: handler.

-d, --description

Description of the learning job.


Specify the data set to be used in the following format. {dataset_name}:{dataset_id} The registered dataset can be referenced from the context given as an argument of the learning code.

( version 0.14.0 or later ) With --environment options, parameters given by --params are ignored.
This option is deprecated, please use --environment instead.

-e, --environment

Specify an environment variable. Registered environment variables can be referenced from the code. e.g.)IMAGE_WIDTH:100
For more information on user-specifiable environment variables, see here.

( version 0.14.0 or later ) With training.yaml, values defined as environment ( params ) in training.yaml are set by default.
This option can overwrite environment ( params ) in training.yaml.

-v, --volume

This corresponds to the --volume option of the docker run command. In the format --volume/path/source/on/host:/path/destination/on/container, specify the host-side path to be mounted and the container-side path to be mounted. It is possible to specify more than one. The --read-only option of the docker run command is not supported.


This corresponds to the --runtime option of the docker run command. The train-local command runs the learning job as a container. The --runtime option specifies the runtime for starting the container.

For example, if nvidia-docker2 is installed, you can run learning using GPU by specifying --runtime nvidia.


This option should be given when using 18.10 custom images.


Specify a configuration file. By default, it references training.yaml in the current directory.

-d option is used as an abbreviation for --description option in version 1.1.0 or later


Run training locally

Premise: It is assumed that the learning job definition named “cats_dogs” and learning job definition version 1 are registered in the organization 1234567890123.
