Administration Guide

Welcome to the Databricks Administration Guide. There are two types of administrators in Databricks: account owner and account admins.

Account Owner

The account owner can make view and make changes to your Databricks instance’s billing, AWS credentials, and audit logging. This user is typically the person that signed up for your Databricks instance. If you don’t know who your account owner is, please contact support@databricks.com.

The account owner uses the Account Console to view and change these properties. See the sections below for more details about the Account Console.

Account Admins

Admin users can manage the users and access control on your Databricks instance. Admin users can grant other users admin privileges so they also become admin users.
