This post is super short 😦

R language and Azure Machine Learning SDK for R was deprecated a year ago (end of 2021). But R can be still used for training and deployment by using Azure Machine learning CLI 2.0!

Furthermore, R language can be used in Machine Learning Designer, for data preparation, data wrangling and statistical analysis.

AzureML SKD for R can be found on this page:

Another way to user R is to use Posit (RStudio) on your compute instance. When you will be creating a new compute instance and you will get to the application usages

You can also install RStudio (Posit). But you will need a R Workbench license in order to install it.

On the Posit website, you can purchase the product

And from there on, you need to add an additional application when configuring a compute instance.

You enter the license key and the Posit (Rstudio) will be available as an application and development environment for your disposal.

So, there are ways to use R in Azure ML, and you can always choose your preferred tool.

Compete set of code, documents, notebooks, and all of the materials will be available at the Github repository:

Happy Advent of 2022!
