Batch Scoring

This section is designed for use with a data orchestration tool that can call and execute Databricks notebooks. For more information on how to set up Azure Data Factory, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/transform-data-using-databricks-notebook.

Create date parameter

dbutils.widgets.text("varReportDate", "19000101")
ReportDate = dbutils.widgets.get("varReportDate")
print(ReportDate)

Connect to storage

storage_account_name = "mystorage"
storage_account_access_key = ""
file_location = "wasbs://<container>@mystorage.blob.core.windows.net/myfiles/data_" + ReportDate + ".csv"
file_type = "csv"
spark.conf.set(
"fs.azure.account.key."+storage_account_name+".blob.core.windows.net",
storage_account_access_key)

Define input schema

from pyspark.sql.types import *
schema = StructType([
StructField("ReportingDate", DateType(), True),
StructField("id", StringType(), True),
StructField("x1", IntegerType(), True),
StructField("x2", DoubleType(), True)
])

Read in new data

dataset = spark.read\
.format(file_type)\
.option("header", "true")\
.schema(schema)\
.load(file_location)
## You can avoid defining a schema by having spark infer it from your data
## This doesn't always work and can be slow
#.option("inferSchema", "true")
## Fill in na's, if needed
# dataset = dataset.na.fill(0)
display(dataset)

Load in transformation pipeline and model

from pyspark.ml.tuning import CrossValidatorModel
from pyspark.ml import PipelineModel
from pyspark.sql.types import IntegerType
from pyspark.sql.functions import col, round
from pyspark.ml.regression import GeneralizedLinearRegressionModel
mypipeline = PipelineModel.load("/mnt/trainedmodels/pipeline/")
mymodel = CrossValidatorModel.load("/mnt/trainedmodels/lr")

Score data using the model

## Transform new data using the pipeline
mydataset = mypipeline.transform(dataset)
## Score new data using a trained model
scoreddataset = mymodel.bestModel.transform(mydataset)
output = scoreddataset.select(col("id"),
col("ReportingDate"),
col("prediction").alias("MyForecast"))
display(output)

Write data back out to storage

fileloc = "/mnt/output" + str(ReportDate) #+ ".csv"
output.write.mode("overwrite").format("com.databricks.spark.csv").option("header","true").csv(fileloc)
