You must have permission to create a pool; see Pool access control.
This article describes how to create a pool using the UI.
- To learn how to use the Databricks CLI to create a pool, see Instance Pools CLI.
- To learn how to use the REST API to create a pool, see Instance Pools API 2.0.
To create a pool:
Click Compute in the sidebar.
Click the Pools tab.
Click the Create Pool button at the top of the page.
Specify the pool configuration.
Click the Create button.
You will notice idle instances in the pending state. When they are no longer pending, clusters attached to the pool will start faster.
