Deploy tab

You can deploy models you build with DataRobot AutoML from the Leaderboard. In most cases, before deployment, you should unlock holdout and retrain your model at 100% to improve predictive accuracy. DataRobot automatically runs Feature Impact for the model (this also calculates Prediction Explanations, if available).

To create a deployment from the Leaderboard:

  1. From the Leaderboard, select the model to use for generating predictions and click Predict > Deploy. The Deploy model page lets you create a new deployment for the selected model. In this example, the model is both recommended for deployment and prepared for deployment:


    The Deploy tab behaves differently in environments without a dedicated prediction server, as described in the section on shared modeling workers, below.

  2. If the model is not prepared for deployment as in the example below, best practice recommends that you click Prepare for deployment. DataRobot runs feature impact, retrains the model on a reduced feature list, trains on a higher sample size and then the full sample size (latest data for date/time partitioned projects).

  3. If using a binary classification model, set the Prediction threshold before proceeding. (New models added to the Leaderboard are assigned the default value 0.5.)


    If you set the prediction threshold before the deployment preparation process, the value does not persist through the process. When deploying the prepared model, if you want it to use a value other than the default, set the value after the model has the Prepared for Deployment badge applied.

  4. To deploy a prepared model, click Deploy model.

  5. Add deployment information and create the deployment.
