To manage your Azure Databricks service, you need a few different kinds of administrator:

  • A user with the Azure Contributor or Owner role who can view and make changes to your Azure Databricks service, Azure subscription, and diagnostic logging configurations. The person who signed up for or created your Azure Databricks service typically has one of these roles.
  • Azure Databricks admins, who manage users and groups—including single sign-on, provisioning, and access control—and workspace storage. Your account can have as many admins as you like, and admins can delegate some management tasks to non-admin users (like cluster management, for example). Most Azure Databricks admin tasks are performed using the Admin Console.
  • Azure Active Directory administrators with permission to set up Azure Active Directory conditional access or Azure Active Directory credential passthrough for access to Azure Data Lake Storage.
