Click in-app to access the full platform documentation for your version of DataRobot.


The Modeling section provides information to help you easily navigate the modeling process. Modeling begins after you have loaded, transformed, performed feature discovery, and analyzed your data.

Workflow overview

The UI-based Workflow overview: AutoML provides a quick overview of steps from data ingest to model deployment. Each step links back to the full documentation for more complete detail.
