PyODPS provides a series of configuration options, which can be obtained through odps.options. Here is a simple example:

from odps import options
# configure lifecycle for all output tables (option lifecycle)
options.lifecycle = 30
# handle string type as bytes when downloading with Tunnel (option tunnel.string_as_binary)
options.tunnel.string_as_binary = True
# get more records when sorting the DataFrame with MaxCompute
options.df.odps.sort.limit = 100000000

The following lists configurable MaxCompute options:
