General settings control Databricks SQL presentation and behavior that applies to all Databricks SQL users in an organization.

You must be an Azure Databricks admin to manage general settings.

  2. Click the General tab.
    • Date & Time Format: The default date and time formats in query visualizations.

      To change date and time formats for an individual query visualization, see Common data types.

    • Visualization: Whether to display the Plotly toolbar in chart visualizations.

    • Download: Whether to allow query results to be downloaded.

    • Notification: Whether query owners are emailed when scheduled queries fail.

    • Language: Whether to enable multi-byte (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) search for query names and descriptions. When enabled searches are slower.

    • SAML Token Expiry Warning: Whether to prompt the user to log in again if you use SAML authentication and their SAML token will expire within a few minutes. This helps to prevent disruption when running queries or refreshing dashboards if you require a SAML token to run queries. You can disable this option if you do not require SAML tokens to run queries.

    • Workspace Colors: Create a custom color palette for visualizations in dashboards. All workspace users can optionally import this custom palette for an individual dashboard. See Workspace colors.
