To manage your Databricks service, you need a few different kinds of administrator:
The account owner, who manages your Databricks account, including billing, subscription level, workspaces, host AWS accounts, audit logging, and high-level usage monitoring. This is typically the user who signed up for your Databricks subscription.
Databricks admins, who manage workspace 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).
Databricks admins are members of the
admingroup. To give a user admin privileges, add them to the
admingroup using the Admin Console, the Groups API, the SCIM API, or a SCIM-enabled identity provider.
Users with administrative access to AWS to manage networking and security for your Databricks instance and IAM credential passthrough.
