Earth Engine Tasks
An extension for monitoring Earth Engine tasks.
EE Tasks: view tasks
Open a table view of Earth Engine tasks for a user or service account.
EE Tasks: run GEE script
Run GEE code from within vscode! Learn more about what is currently supported here.
A Google Earth Engine account is required to use the Earth Engine Tasks Manager extension.
Sign in options
EE Tasks: sign in command to add an account to use with the EE Tasks extension.
You might already have an account ready to use with the extension (no sign-in required) if you are a user of the Earth Engine python client library or the Earth Engine command line tool (eecli). Use the
EE Tasks: update available accounts to make these accounts available to the extension. This command will run automatically upon first use of either the view tasks or run gee script commands, if there are no signed-in accounts yet.
Multiple panels may be opened to view the tasks for different accounts.
Interactive account selection
If there are at least two accounts available to the extension, you will be prompted to select an account when using either the
EE Tasks: view tasks or
EE Tasks: run GEE script.
Accounts signed-in through the extension (
EE Tasks: sign in) show with a 👤 icon next to them.
You can remove a signed-in account with
EE Tasks: sign out.
Other available accounts are updated with the
EE Tasks: update available accounts.
earthengine account refers to the credentials stored and managed by the earthengine Python API. The EE Tasks extension will not modify these credentials.
You might also have gcloud installed if you use the Earth Engine command line tool (the python API client also uses
gcloud in some environments). The
application-default account refers to the
application default credentials used by gcloud.
gcloud accounts shown (if any) are accounts that have been authenticated using
gcloud auth login (you can use
gcloud auth list to display these accounts). If the account has already been signed-in through the extension, it will not be repeated under
When using the
EE tasks: run GEE script command, you will also be prompted for a project.
EE Tasks: view tasks (default account) can be used to open a tasks panel view without having to select the account. You can set the default account to use with the
EE Tasks: set default account. This is only useful if there is more than one account available to the extension.
Service account (advanced use)
EE Tasks: view tasks (service account) to view the tasks associated to a service account. You wil be prompted to select a
json file (see the animation above).
There is also a variation of the EE Tasks: run GEE script command to use a service account instead of a user account.
This extension contributes the following settings:
eetasks.limit: Maximum number of tasks to request from earthengine. This value is set by default to null (blank), which means that there is no limit to the number of tasks to retrieve.
- The tasks tables do not refresh automatically. However, you can use the refresh button (🔄) to update the table on demand.
- The intended use for the
EE Tasks: run GEE script is limited and currently experimental (recommended for experienced users only). Learn more about it here.
- An unknown cause for an issue prevents the use of synchronous calls to some
ee functions in Windows. Learn more about it here
- In MacOS, the same issue raises an error:
Error: EROFS: read-only file system, open '.node-xmlhttprequest-sync-32376'.
- In Linux, it works as expected.
