  • When creating you model, you can specify the requirements.txt as an environment variable.

    For Eg.

    env = {
        'SAGEMAKER_REQUIREMENTS': 'requirements.txt', # path relative to `source_dir` below.
    sagemaker_model = TensorFlowModel(model_data = 's3://mybucket/modelTarFile,
                                      role = role,
                                      entry_point = '',
                                      code_location = 's3://mybucket/runtime-code/',
                                      source_dir = 'src',
                                      env = env,
                                      name = 'model_name',
                                      sagemaker_session = sagemaker_session,

    This would ensure that the requirements file is run after the docker container is created, before running any code on it.
