How to Get Started with Apache Airflow

Introduction to Apache Airflow

What is Apache Airflow?

Definition and purpose

Apache Airflow is an open-source platform for programmatically authoring, scheduling, and monitoring workflows. It is designed to orchestrate complex computational workflows and data processing pipelines, allowing users to define tasks and dependencies as code, schedule their execution, and monitor their progress through a web-based user interface.

Brief history and development

Apache Airflow was created by Maxime Beauchemin at Airbnb in 2014 to address the challenges of managing and scheduling complex data workflows. It was open-sourced in 2015 and became an Apache Incubator project in 2016. Since then, Airflow has gained widespread adoption and has become a popular choice for data orchestration in various industries.

Basic Concepts

DAGs (Directed Acyclic Graphs)

In Airflow, workflows are defined as Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs). A DAG is a collection of tasks that are organized in a way that reflects their dependencies and relationships. Each DAG represents a complete workflow and is defined in a Python script.

Here's a simple example of a DAG definition:

from airflow import DAG
from airflow.operators.dummy_operator import DummyOperator
from datetime import datetime, timedelta
default_args = {
    'owner': 'airflow',
    'depends_on_past': False,
    'start_date': datetime(2023, 1, 1),
    'email_on_failure': False,
    'email_on_retry': False,
    'retries': 1,
    'retry_delay': timedelta(minutes=5),
dag = DAG(
    description='A simple DAG',
start_task = DummyOperator(task_id='start', dag=dag)
end_task = DummyOperator(task_id='end', dag=dag)
start_task >> end_task

Tasks and Operators

Tasks are the basic units of execution in Airflow. They represent a single unit of work, such as running a Python function, executing a SQL query, or sending an email. Tasks are defined using Operators, which are predefined templates for common tasks.

Airflow provides a wide range of built-in operators, including:

  • BashOperator: Executes a Bash command
  • PythonOperator: Executes a Python function
  • EmailOperator: Sends an email
  • HTTPOperator: Makes an HTTP request
  • SqlOperator: Executes a SQL query
  • And many more...

Here's an example of defining a task using the PythonOperator:

from airflow.operators.python_operator import PythonOperator
def print_hello():
    print("Hello, Airflow!")
hello_task = PythonOperator(

Schedules and Intervals

Airflow allows you to schedule the execution of DAGs at regular intervals. You can define the schedule using cron expressions or timedelta objects. The schedule_interval parameter in the DAG definition determines the frequency of execution.

For example, to run a DAG daily at midnight, you can set the schedule_interval as follows:

dag = DAG(
    description='A simple DAG',
    schedule_interval='0 0 * * *',  # Daily at midnight


Executors are responsible for actually running the tasks defined in a DAG. Airflow supports several types of executors, allowing you to scale and distribute the execution of tasks across multiple workers.

The available executors include:

  • SequentialExecutor: Runs tasks sequentially in a single process
  • LocalExecutor: Runs tasks in parallel on the same machine
  • CeleryExecutor: Distributes tasks to a Celery cluster for parallel execution
  • KubernetesExecutor: Runs tasks on a Kubernetes cluster

Connections and Hooks

Connections in Airflow define how to connect to external systems, such as databases, APIs, or cloud services. They store the necessary information (e.g., host, port, credentials) required to establish a connection.

Hooks provide a way to interact with the external systems defined in the connections. They encapsulate the logic for connecting to and communicating with the specific system, making it easier to perform common operations.

Airflow provides built-in hooks for various systems, such as:

  • PostgresHook: Interacts with PostgreSQL databases
  • S3Hook: Interacts with Amazon S3 storage
  • HttpHook: Makes HTTP requests
  • And many more...

Here's an example of using a hook to retrieve data from a PostgreSQL database:

from airflow.hooks.postgres_hook import PostgresHook
def fetch_data(**context):
    hook = PostgresHook(postgres_conn_id='my_postgres_conn')
    result = hook.get_records(sql="SELECT * FROM my_table")
fetch_data_task = PythonOperator(

Key Features of Apache Airflow

Scalability and Flexibility

Distributed task execution

Airflow allows you to scale the execution of tasks horizontally by distributing them across multiple workers. This enables parallel processing and helps handle large-scale workflows efficiently. With the appropriate executor configuration, Airflow can leverage the power of distributed computing to execute tasks concurrently.

Support for various executors

Airflow supports different types of executors, providing flexibility in how tasks are executed. The choice of executor depends on the specific requirements and infrastructure setup. For example:

  • The SequentialExecutor is suitable for small-scale workflows or testing purposes, as it runs tasks sequentially in a single process.
  • The LocalExecutor allows parallel execution of tasks on the same machine, utilizing multiple processes.
  • The CeleryExecutor distributes tasks to a Celery cluster, enabling horizontal scalability across multiple nodes.
  • The KubernetesExecutor runs tasks on a Kubernetes cluster, providing dynamic resource allocation and containerization benefits.


Plugins and custom operators

Airflow provides an extensible architecture that allows you to create custom plugins and operators to extend its functionality. Plugins can be used to add new features, integrate with external systems, or modify the behavior of existing components.

Custom operators enable you to define new types of tasks that are specific to your use case. By creating custom operators, you can encapsulate complex logic, interact with proprietary systems, or perform specialized computations.

Here's an example of a custom operator that performs a specific task:

from airflow.models.baseoperator import BaseOperator
from airflow.utils.decorators import apply_defaults
class MyCustomOperator(BaseOperator):
    def __init__(self, my_param, *args, **kwargs):
        super().__init__(*args, **kwargs)
        self.my_param = my_param
    def execute(self, context):
        # Custom task logic goes here
        print(f"Executing MyCustomOperator with param: {self.my_param}")

Integration with various data sources and systems

Airflow seamlessly integrates with a wide range of data sources and systems, making it a versatile tool for data orchestration. It provides built-in hooks and operators for popular databases (e.g., PostgreSQL, MySQL, Hive), cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure), and data processing frameworks (e.g., Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop).

This integration capability allows you to build data pipelines that span multiple systems, enabling tasks to read from and write to different data sources, trigger external processes, and facilitate data flow across various components.

User Interface and Monitoring

Web-based UI for DAG management and monitoring

Airflow provides a user-friendly web-based user interface (UI) for managing and monitoring DAGs. The UI allows you to visualize the structure and dependencies of your DAGs, trigger manual runs, monitor task progress, and view logs.

The Airflow UI provides a centralized view of your workflows, making it easy to track the status of tasks, identify bottlenecks, and troubleshoot issues. It offers intuitive navigation, search functionality, and various filters to help you manage and monitor your DAGs effectively.

Task status tracking and error handling

Airflow keeps track of the status of each task execution, providing visibility into the progress and health of your workflows. The UI displays the status of tasks in real-time, indicating whether they are running, succeeded, failed, or in any other state.

When a task encounters an error or fails, Airflow captures the exception and provides detailed error messages and stack traces. This information is available in the UI, allowing you to investigate and debug issues quickly. Airflow also supports configurable retry mechanisms, enabling you to define retry policies for failed tasks.

Logging and debugging capabilities

Airflow generates comprehensive logs for each task execution, capturing important information such as task parameters, runtime details, and any output or errors. These logs are accessible through the Airflow UI, providing valuable insights for debugging and troubleshooting.

In addition to the UI, Airflow allows you to configure various logging settings, such as log levels, log formats, and log destinations. You can direct logs to different storage systems (e.g., local files, remote storage) or integrate with external logging and monitoring solutions for centralized log management.

Security and Authentication

Role-based access control (RBAC)

Airflow supports role-based access control (RBAC) to manage user permissions and access to DAGs and tasks. RBAC allows you to define roles with specific privileges and assign those roles to users. This ensures that users have the appropriate level of access based on their responsibilities and prevents unauthorized modifications to workflows.

With RBAC, you can control who can view, edit, or execute DAGs, and restrict access to sensitive information or critical tasks. Airflow provides a flexible permission model that allows you to define custom roles and permissions based on your organization's security requirements.

Authentication and authorization mechanisms

Airflow offers various authentication and authorization mechanisms to secure access to the web UI and API. It supports multiple authentication backends, including:

  • Password-based authentication: Users can log in using a username and password.
  • OAuth/OpenID Connect: Airflow can integrate with external identity providers for single sign-on (SSO) and centralized user management.
  • Kerberos authentication: Airflow supports Kerberos authentication for secure access in enterprise environments.

In addition to authentication, Airflow provides authorization controls to restrict access to specific features, views, and actions based on user roles and permissions. This ensures that users can only perform actions that are allowed by their assigned roles.

Secure connections and data handling

Airflow prioritizes the security of connections and data handling. It allows you to store sensitive information, such as database credentials and API keys, securely using connection objects. These connection objects can be encrypted and stored in a secure backend, such as Hashicorp Vault or AWS Secrets Manager.

When interacting with external systems, Airflow supports secure communication protocols like SSL/TLS to encrypt data in transit. It also provides mechanisms to handle and mask sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information (PII) or confidential business data, ensuring that it is not exposed in logs or user interfaces.

Architecture of Apache Airflow

Core Components


The Scheduler is a core component of Airflow responsible for scheduling and triggering the execution of tasks. It continuously monitors the DAGs and their associated tasks, checking their schedules and dependencies to determine when they should be executed.

The Scheduler reads the DAG definitions from the configured DAG directory and creates a DAG run for each active DAG based on its schedule. It then assigns tasks to the available Executors for execution, considering factors such as task dependencies, priority, and resource availability.


The Webserver is the component that serves the Airflow web UI. It provides a user-friendly interface for managing and monitoring DAGs, tasks, and their executions. The Webserver communicates with the Scheduler and the Metadata Database to retrieve and display relevant information.

The Webserver handles user authentication and authorization, allowing users to log in and access the UI based on their assigned roles and permissions. It also exposes APIs for programmatic interaction with Airflow, enabling integration with external systems and tools.


The Executor is responsible for actually running the tasks defined in a DAG. Airflow supports different types of Executors, each with its own characteristics and use cases. The Executor receives tasks from the Scheduler and exec
