Adds a Dataframe DataAsset to this SparkDatasource object.

  • name – The name of the DataFrame asset. This can be any arbitrary string.

  • dataframe – The Spark Dataframe containing the data for this DataFrame data asset.

  • Deprecated since version 0.16.15: The “dataframe” argument is no longer part of “PandasDatasource.add_dataframe_asset()” method call; instead, “dataframe” is the required argument to “DataFrameAsset.build_batch_request()” method.

  • batch_metadata – An arbitrary user defined dictionary with string keys which will get inherited by any batches created from the asset.
