Azure Cosmos DB built-in Jupyter notebooks will be retired March 30, 2024

Published date: October 06, 2023

On 30 March 2024, the Azure Cosmos DB preview of built-in Jupyter notebooks will be retired. If you’re using notebooks to interact with your Azure Cosmos DB account, transition to run these notebooks using Visual Studio Code’s support for Jupyter notebooks, or your preferred notebooks client.

Visual Studio Code Jupyter notebooks provides a richer developer experience, including IntelliSense, support for languages including Python, C#, and others, and debugging functionality. Learn about Visual Studio Code Juypter notebooks here.
