Using the Environment Class with Pipeline Runs

I am using an estimator step for a pipeline using the Environment class, in order to have a custom Docker image as I need some apt-get packages to be able to install a specific pip package. It appears from the logs that it's completely ignoring, unlike the non-pipeline version of the estimator, the docker portion of the environment variable. Very simply, this seems broken :

I'm running on SDK v1.0.65, and my dockerfile is completely ignored, I'm using

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/azureml/base:latest\nRUN apt-get update && apt-get -y install freetds-dev freetds-bin vim gcc

in the base_dockerfile property of my code. Here's a snippet of my code :

from azureml.core import Environment
from azureml.core.environment import CondaDependencies
conda_dep = CondaDependencies()
conda_dep.add_pip_package('pymssql==2.1.1')
myenv = Environment(name="mssqlenv")
myenv.python.conda_dependencies=conda_dep
myenv.docker.enabled = True
myenv.docker.base_dockerfile = 'FROM mcr.microsoft.com/azureml/base:latest\nRUN apt-get update && apt-get -y install freetds-dev freetds-bin vim gcc'
myenv.docker.base_image = None

This works well when I use an Estimator by itself, but if I insert this estimator in a Pipeline, it fails. Here's my code to launch it from a Pipeline run:

from azureml.pipeline.steps import EstimatorStep

sql_est_step = EstimatorStep(name="sql_step", 
                         estimator=est, 
                         estimator_entry_script_arguments=[],
                         runconfig_pipeline_params=None, 
                         compute_target=cpu_cluster)
from azureml.pipeline.core import Pipeline
from azureml.core import Experiment
pipeline = Pipeline(workspace=ws, steps=[sql_est_step])
pipeline_run = exp.submit(pipeline)

When launching this, the logs for the container building service reveal:

FROM continuumio/miniconda3:4.4.10... etc.

Which indicates it's ignoring my FROM mcr.... statement in the Environment class I've associated with this Estimator, and my pip install fails.

Am I missing something? Is there a workaround?


I found a workaround for now, which is to build your own Docker image. You can do this by using these options of the DockerSection of the Environment :

myenv.docker.base_image_registry.address = '<your_acr>.azurecr.io'
myenv.docker.base_image_registry.username = '<your_acr>'
myenv.docker.base_image_registry.password = '<your_acr_password>'
myenv.docker.base_image = '<your_acr>.azurecr.io/testimg:latest'

and use obviously whichever docker image you built and pushed to the container registry linked to the Azure Machine Learning Workspace.

To create the image, you would run something like this at the command line of a machine that can build a linux based container (like a Notebook VM):

docker build . -t <your_image_name>
# Tag it for upload
docker tag <your_image_name:latest <your_acr>.azurecr.io/<your_image_name>:latest
# Login to Azure
az login
# login to the container registry so that the push will work
az acr login --name <your_acr>
# push the image
docker push <your_acr>.azurecr.io/<your_image_name>:latest

Once the image is pushed, you should be able to get that working.

Environment, The advantages of using environments include the following. Deployment history - Pipeline name and run details are recorded for deployments  In this example we list the environment variables using the printenv command of Unix/Linux which we pipe through the Unix sort command so we'll see the environment variables in a sorted list. We invoke it using the sh command of the Jenkins Pipeline.


I can confirm that this is a bug on the AML Pipeline side. Specifically, the runconfig property environment.docker.base_dockerfile is not being passed through correctly in pipeline jobs. We are working on a fix. In the meantime, you can use the workaround from this thread of building the docker image first and specifying it with environment.docker.base_image (which is passed through correctly).
