woodwork.deserialize.read_woodwork_table(path, profile_name=None, validate=False, **kwargs)[source]

  • path (str) – Directory on disk, S3 path, or URL to read woodwork_typing_info.json.

  • profile_name (str, bool) – The AWS profile specified to write to S3. Will default to None and search for AWS credentials. Set to False to use an anonymous profile.

Note: If serialized data was modified outside of Woodwork and you are unsure of the validity of the data or typing information, validate should be set to True.
