Databricks AutoML (Forecasting) Python SDK for Model Serving

New Contributor II

I am using Databricks AutoML ( Python SDK) to forecast bed occupancy. (Actually, Databricks used MLflow experiments for AutoML run). After training with different iterations, I registered the best model in the Databricks Model registry. Now I am trying to serve the register model and I have seen that it is always in the "Pending" stage and in the deployment log has an attached error message.

Can anyone please help me here?

Note: Model artifacts has been created automatically as its from AutoML run. I think I don't have control to add pip dependency and package version.

Warning: you have pip-installed dependencies in your environment file, but you do not list pip itself as one of your conda dependencies.  Conda may not use the correct pip to install your packages, and they may end up in the wrong place.  Please add an explicit pip dependency.  I'm adding one for you, but still nagging you.

This issue I am facing only for Databricks AutoML forecasting, not getting this issue for Databricks AutoML for Regression and Classification.

The error says it only supports versions <3.11 , have you tried installing any version which is less than 3.11 and run?

Hi Debayan - Thanks for your reply.

As mentioned, I used Databricks AutoML for forecasting. Env and dependencies created automatically. Although, In artifact path, after AutoML run, generates bellow config and there python version 3.9.5. But not sure in deployment log why it is trying to install Python 3.11.

artifact_path: model
databricks_runtime: 12.0.x-cpu-ml-scala2.12
    cloudpickle_version: 2.0.0
      conda: conda.yaml
      virtualenv: python_env.yaml
    loader_module: mlflow.pyfunc.model
    python_model: python_model.pkl
    python_version: 3.9.5
mlflow_version: 2.0.1

Hi, It can be a bug if the python version is 3.9.5 and still the error is on compatibility. Could you please raise a support case to look into it further?
