Access Marketplace

Permission Roles to Access Marketplace

Make sure your role is Developer or Project Owner to access the Marketplace.

  • The Marketplace is available on the left-side panel of the Dataloop platform. By default, the Models tab is displayed.
  • Also, you can access Marketplace from:
    • The Model Management page to install a model.
    • The CloudOps page to install Applications.

The Marketplace page features are explained in the following sections:

Marketplace Tabs

The Marketplace page displays all the pipelines and nodes, models, and elements available in the Dataloop in dedicated tabs.

Each tab displays the applications, models, or pipelines in a card view where you can view:

  • Provider name
  • Its category such as Image, Model, Object Detection, etc.
  • The Public or Private indication (icon). Public: The application is available for installation for all users. Private: Only available in the project or org level.
  • Updated Timestamp

Click on a card to view more information on the right-side panel, such as button to install the model or pipelines, description, content information, details, and applicable actions.

By default, card view is sorted based on the recently created date.

The Marketplace tabs' details are explained in the following sections:

Details: Right-Side Panel

After you select a pipeline, node, model, or application, a panel displaying the details opens on the right side. You can view details, such as description, status, scope level, installed and uninstalled versions details (Pipeline Templates, Nodes, Models, etc.), created or updated by username, project name, etc.

  • Click on the GitHub link in the description section to view the GitHub repository.
  • Click on the Copy icon to copy the email ID of the user who created and updated the pipelines, nodes, models, or applications.
  • Click on the Document (under the Content) icon to view the details in a popup.

Search and Filters

The search and filter capabilities of Marketplace is crucial for enhancing user experience by allowing users to efficiently navigate through a wide range of available tools and solutions.

Here are some key aspects of search and filter functions that Marketplace might incorporate to achieve its goals:

Filter by Categories

Marketplace enables the filtering of models, pipelines, and applications through distinct categories. These categories vary between models, pipelines, and applications:

Filter by Installation Status

Marketplace allows you to filter models, pipelines & nodes, and applications based on their installation status.

  • Installed: Click on the Select Filters > Installed, it displays models, pipelines, etc. that are installed in your project or organization.
  • Uninstalled: Click on the Select Filters > Uninstalled, it displays models, pipelines, etc. that are installed in your project or organization.

Filter by Privacy Level

Marketplace offers a flexible filtering system that categorizes models, pipelines, nodes, and other applications according to their privacy level, enhancing navigation and selection within the Dataloop platform.

  • Project: This level includes models, pipelines, and similar resources currently accessible within the active project on Dataloop. Applications, pipelines, models, etc. created or installed in the project by any user.
  • Organization: At this level, users can explore models, pipelines, and other applications that are available across the entire organization within Dataloop, facilitating resource sharing and collaboration among different projects within the same organization.
  • Public: This broadest scope level allows access to models, pipelines, and applications that are publicly available to all users on the Dataloop platform, promoting a wide exchange of tools and ideas across the global Dataloop community.

Search by Using Free Texts

Marketplace enables you to conduct searches for pipeline templates, nodes, models, and applications using their display names and descriptions.
