Warning: "Failed to detect the name of this notebook"

I’m not sure why this started happening, but WB is now giving us this error message:

Failed to detect the name of this notebook, you can set it manually with the WANDB_NOTEBOOK_NAME environment variable to enable code saving.

We do not use notebooks and so there is no reason for us to set the above mentioned environment variable. How can we make this stop? And why is WB pushing us to set an optional parameter?

Hi Kevin!

What environment are you running your code in? It sounds like wandb might be capturing an IPython kernel. You don’t really need to worry about this warning, it does not affect your W&B Run all too much.
