I have defined a DAG in a file called
tutorial_2.py (actually a copy of the
tutorial.py provided in the
airflow tutorial, except with the
dag_id changed to
When I look inside my default, unmodified
airflow.cfg (located in
~/airflow), I see that
dags_folder is set to
cd /home/alex/airflow; mkdir dags; cd dags; cp [...]/tutorial_2.py tutorial_2.py. Now I have a
dags folder matching the path set in
airflow.cfg , containing the
tutorial_2.py file I created earlier.
However, when I run
airflow list_dags, I only get the names corresponding with the default, tutorial DAGs.
I would like to have
tutorial_2 show up in my DAG list, so that I can begin interacting with. Neither
python tutorial_2.py nor
airflow resetdb have caused it to appear in the list.
How do I remedy this?
I think the reason for this is because you haven’t exported
AIRFLOW_HOME="/home/alex/airflow/dags" airflow list_dags.
If that’s not working than do two steps
I believe this should work. Give it a go?
In my understanding,
AIRFLOW_HOME should link to the directory where
airflow.cfg is stored. Then,
airflow.cfg can apply and set the dag directory to the value you put in it.
The important point is :
airflow.cfg is useless if your
AIRFLOW_HOME is not set
The issue is that you might have two airflow configs existing in your directories, so check for /root/airflow/dags and if yes you require to change the dags_folder path in both airflow.cfg s
I might be using the latest airflow, the command has changed. What works for me is:
airflow dags list
