Job Launcher

The Posit Job Launcher provides the ability for Posit Workbench to start processes within various batch processing systems (e.g., Slurm) and container orchestration platforms (e.g., Kubernetes). Posit Workbench integrates with the Job Launcher to allow you to run your JupyterLab, Jupyter Notebook, RStudio Pro, and VS Code Sessions within your compute cluster software of choice, and allows you to containerize your sessions for maximum process isolation and operations efficiency. Furthermore, users can submit standalone Workbench jobs to your compute cluster(s) to run computationally expensive R or Python scripts.


Integration with the Job Launcher is not enabled in all editions of Posit Workbench. You can run rstudio-server license-manager status to see if the Launcher is enabled. If it isn’t, contact to purchase a license with the Job Launcher enabled.
