This section references code that is available in the Advanced Topics main page’s DAG Factory Setup section. In addition, the DAGs in the screenshots and examples below were generated by the DAG Factory example section.

This page is not meant to be a replacement for the Airflow documentation. For a guided tour of Admin UI basics see the official docs.

To launch our Admin console, click the button below on the MWAA console page:
