Migration from Rubrix#
If you have already running a Rubrix server and want to upgrade to the new Argilla server, this guide will help you understand and transition into Argilla.
Python module and command#
The module now is called
argilla instead of
rubrix, but the rest of the code remains fully compatible, so
if you have to upgrade some codebase, you should just replace the line:
with the new module name
Equivalently, to launch the server:
argilla server start
python -m rubrix
All the environment variables have changed from using the prefix
RUBRIX_ to using the prefix
1.13.0, the support for non-prefixed environment variables has been removed. All environment variables must be prefixed with
The best way to configure a new Argilla Server from Rubrix is just to duplicate all ENV variables for both, Rubrix and Argilla instances. This will simplify a version rollback if needed.
New Elasticsearch index naming conventions#
Argilla also introduces a new name convention for the stored indices in Elasticsearch.
For the index pattern containing all created datasets, the new namespace is
ar.datasets, instead of
For indices containing the dataset records, the new name convention is
ar.dataset.<dataset_id>, instead of
Enable migration process#
By default, the new Argilla server won’t check if datasets from a previous Rubrix instance exist.
If you want the new Argilla Server to detect previous Rubrix datasets and make them accessible into your Argilla Server instance you can set the
ARGILLA_ENABLE_MIGRATION like this before starting the Argilla server:
ARGILLA_ENABLE_MIGRATION=1 argilla server start
This will fetch info contained in the Rubrix instance
.rubrix.datasetsw-v0 index and
will copy the info into the new
Then, for each old rubrix index, will create an alias with new naming convention format.
This will allow you to work with previous Rubrix datasets from your new Argilla Server without duplicating information and still see the changes from your previous Rubrix Server.
This migration switch can help you with a more gradual transition into Argilla.
:warning: New datasets created from argilla won’t be visible from the old rubrix instance.
