Command: select


guild select [OPTIONS] [RUN]

Select a run and shows its ID.

This command is generally used when specifying a run ID for another Guild command. For example, to restart the latest train run:

`guild run --restart $(guild select -o train)`

Specify a Run

You may specify a run using a run ID, a run ID prefix, or a one-based index corresponding to a run returned by the list command.

If RUN isn’t specified, the latest matching run is selected.

Selecting Min or Max Scalar

To select the run with the lowest or highest scalar value, use --min or --max respectively. For example, to select the run with the lowest loss scalar value, use --min loss.

Other run filters are applied before selecting a minimum or maximium scalar value.

Filter by Operation

Runs may be filtered by operation using --operation. A run is only included if any part of its full operation name, including the package and model name, matches the value.

Use --operation multiple times to include more runs.

Filter by Label

Use --label to only include runs with labels containing a specified value. To select runs that do not contain a label, specify a dash ‘-’ for VAL.

Use --label multiple times to include more runs.

Filter by Tag

Use --tag to only include runs with a specified tag. Tags must match completely and are case sensitive.

Use --tag multiple times to include more runs.

Filter by Marked and Unmarked

Use --marked to only include marked runs.

Use --unmarked to only include unmarked runs. This option may not be used with --marked.

Filter by Run Start Time

Use --started to limit runs to those that have started within a specified time range.

IMPORTANT: You must quote RANGE values that contain spaces. For example, to filter runs started within the last hour, use the option:

--started 'last hour'

You can specify a time range using several different forms:

last N minutes|hours|days
this week|month|year
last week|month|year
N days|weeks|months|years ago

DATETIME may be specified as a date in the format YY-MM-DD (the leading YY- may be omitted) or as a time in the format HH:MM (24 hour clock). A date and time may be specified together as DATE TIME.

When using between DATETIME and DATETIME, values for DATETIME may be specified in either order.

When specifying values like minutes and hours the trailing s may be omitted to improve readability. You may also use min instead of minutes and hr instead of hours.


after 7-1
after 9:00
between 1-1 and 4-30
between 10:00 and 15:00
last 30 min
last 6 hours
this week
last month
3 weeks ago

Filter by Source Code Digest

To show runs for a specific source code digest, use -g or --digest with a complete or partial digest value.

Filter by Run Status

Runs may also be filtered by specifying one or more status filters: --running, --completed, --error, and --terminated. These may be used together to include runs that match any of the filters. For example to only include runs that were either terminated or exited with an error, use --terminated --error, or the short form -Set.

You may combine more than one status character with -S to expand the filter. For example, -Set shows only runs with terminated or error status.

Status filters are applied before RUN indexes are resolved. For example, a run index of 1 is the latest run that matches the status filters.
