How to downgrade python version in Fabric Data Science

Hey, 

 

I'm working on a project, in which Python version 3.8 is required, how it is possible to down grade the Python version from 3.10 to 3.8?

As of now runtime 1 and 2 supported the 3.10 python version.

Thanks

Hi @asifraza 
Apologies for an error from my side. I forgot to mention that supporting multiple python versions is on roadmap. Hence it is not available now. I will keep you updated once it is deployed.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi @asifraza 
Thanks for using Fabric Community.

Downgrading the Python version directly within a running Fabric Data Science Notebook isn't currently supported. This is because Fabric notebooks use kernels to execute code, and each kernel is tied to a specific Python version.
Instead you can create a notebook. When creating a new Fabric notebook, you'll have the option to specify the desired Python version. Ensure you select Python 3.8 during this setup process.

If you feel that Downgrading the version feature should be available please feel free to give your feedback.
Appreciate if you could share the feedback on our feedback channel.  which would be open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows our product teams to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and gives insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further queries.

@v-nikhilan-msft Thanks for your prompt answer, i couldn't find any option for choosing the python version while creating a notebook, 
Could you please share the steps in more detail, how i can choose the python version?
Please note: i'm using the trial version.
