Enable pool access control for your workspace


This feature is in Public Preview.


Access control is available only in the Premium plan (or, for customers who subscribed to Databricks before March 3, 2020, the Operational Security package).

By default, all users can create and modify pools unless an administrator enables pool access control. With pool access control, permissions determine a user’s abilities. This article describes how to enable pool access control.

For information about assigning permissions and configuring pool access control, see Pool access control.
