Subject Re: Is there a way to get the final web URL from an active Spark context
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2020 22:31:49 GMT
To answer my own question, it turns out what I was after is the YARN
ResourceManager URL for the Spark application.  As alluded to in SPARK-20458
<>, it's possible to use
the YARN API client to get this value.  Here is a gist that shows how it
can be done (given an instance of the Hadoop Configuration object):
