These features and Azure Databricks platform improvements were released in September 2018.

SCIM provisioning using Azure AD (Preview)

September 26, 2018

You can now use Azure Active Directory to provision users and groups with Azure Databricks and deprovision them when they leave your organization or no longer need access to Azure Databricks.

This feature is in Preview. See Provision Users and Groups Using SCIM.

Cluster tags on Azure bills

September 25, 2018: Version 2.81

Cluster tags, which you specify when you create a cluster, allow you to monitor the cost of cloud resources used by various groups in your organization. Custom cluster tags now appear on Azure bills, making it easier to create chargebacks for DBU usage.

Support for Fsv2 series VMs

September 25, 2018: Version 2.81

Azure Databricks now supports Fsv2 series virtual machines. To learn about the Fsv2 series, see Compute optimized virtual machine sizes.

SCIM API for provisioning users and groups (Preview)

September 13, 2018: Version 2.80

Azure Databricks now supports SCIM, or System for Cross-domain Identity Management, an open standard that allows you to automate user provisioning using a REST API and JSON. SCIM lets you use an identity provider to create users in Databricks and give them the proper level of access, as well as remove access for users (deprovision them) when they leave your organization or no longer need access to Databricks.

This feature is in Preview. See SCIM API (Users and Groups).
