This Admin guide is for version 1.2.0-27 of RStudio Package Manager (RSPM).

RSPM organizes and centralizes R and Python packages across your team, department, or the entire organization.

Traditionally, R and Python packages enter the organization from a variety of sources including, but not limited to:

  • CRAN
  • PyPI
  • Bioconductor
  • GitHub
  • Internally developed package sources

RSPM empowers users to access packages and reproduce environments while giving IT control and visibility into package use. This guide will help an administrator install and configure RSPM on a managed server.


There is a left-hand navigation pane that displays the chapters and subchapters that are in this administrator guide. Some chapters contain subchapters that may not initially display when navigating this guide. To expand a chapter's subchapters, simply click the title of the chapter. If there are no subchapters within the chapter, then clicking the chapter title does not display any subchapters.
