  1. I could see list of my attached notebooks

    We have hundreds of notebooks. For easier workflow and navigation, it'd be cool if a user would be able to easily see a list of all his attached notebooks.

    This could be located on the left side menu, next to Recent.

  3. Allow external applications to call notebooks and receive datasets.

    Enable the ability for Dashboards and visualization front-ends to dynamically call (JDBC or Rest API) and pass in variables into SPARKR or other notebooks and receive datasets.

  5. we could retrieve logs from messed up clusters that we had to reset

    When a DBC cluster is having problems, it can help to reset it. Sometimes there is pressure to do that quickly to get back up and running. After a reset, we should be able to see (and easily save an archive of) the old logs, so we can try to figure out what went wrong.
    Now, they seem to just disappear after a reset.

  6. display() can collect user input and make a new RDD

    We have some automatic classifier code. Not surprisingly, it is not perfect. If I make an RDD holding some input data and the resulting classification decision, I'd like to have a way to show those to the user so they can mark the decisions they know are right or wrong. That would then go into an active learning process where the classifier is retrained with the new data from each pass.

    What would be slick would be if display() or something like it could have a 'feedback' argument. When set, display()would do something like show columns of red X's and…

  7. you would allow us to post more than 140 characters here as feedback

    ...or at least you let us know (by showing all the input boxes) that we would be able to describe things more fully before we just give up at the spread of the twitter meme.

    To clarify: now, the user interface just throws away all but the first 140 characters that we type or paste in, and gives no hints that we will also be asked for a category and a more complete description.

  8. mounted data showed up in the storage tab of the spark UI

    I mounted an S3 bucket and didn't realize the mount persisted after detaching my cluster, so was getting charged for extra SSD storage on AWS when I could've been unmounting the data after use everyday.

  11. A "dbfsWordCount" streaming example would be a very helpful addition to the databricks_guide.

    Just as a starter, maybe also add Kafka and Kinesis examples later on.

  14. Control the output that shows up in a cell

    When combing variable assignments and output of an action in the same cell, both the assignments and the action output are displayed together.

    It would be nice to control the output for a given cell.

    The workaround is to do the assignments in one cell and the actions in another to separate the output. This way, you can hide the output of the variable assignment and keep the output of the action output.

  15. Indicator within Cell of cell update status

    For each cell, have an indicator to determine if that cell has been edited since the last time that the cell was executed. Otherwise, it’s too hard to tell what edits were made and whether I need to waste additional compute time to re-execute a previous cell.

  16. Sort order for table objects

    Could we get a way to have sort order buttons on the columns so that I can just click and it will auto-sort the order based on whichever column I pick

  17. Support for parameters in SQL notebooks

    It's supported in Python and Scala but the SQL notebooks. Definitely a valuable idea so that you can use the SQL notebook to build a dashboard for a whole range of problems. Now I need to use python to do this.

  18. collaboration notices indicated if people were idle for more than x minutes.

    For collaboration - nice to know who is working on a notebook and where they are. But knowing if they are there or not would be nice. "Idle for more than 5 minutes" might be nice to have in the tooltip that gives their name.

  19. All notebooks within a folder could be exported as source code

    The ability to export all notebooks as source code rather doing so one-by-one would be very helpful.

  20. Bulk assign notebooks to clusters

    I have a series of notebooks which work together (utils, table creations, dashboards, etc). If I want the job to run on a new cluster currently I have to manually detach and attach each notebook individually.

    With this feature I would be able to select multiple notebooks and attach them to a specific cluster.
