I have a simple shader with a water texure and I'd like to make it semi transparent. Using Blender Internal engine, you can do this just by setting the alpha value on the shader. Is there a way to do something similar in cycles?

To make a semi transparent texture, place a diffuse and transparent shaders in the input of a mix node in the node editor. enter image description here

To make water, use the glass shader and play around with the node values. enter image description here

It depends on the nodes used to make the material. The latest “Principled” has a transmission slider that controls transparency. In cycles that is all you need; with eeVee you also need to enable that feature.

from the docs:
