Administration Guide

Welcome to the Databricks Administration Guide. There are three types of administrators in Databricks: account owner, account admins, and cloud configuration admins.

Account Owner

The account owner can view and make changes to your Databricks account billing, AWS configuration, audit logging, and cancel Databricks subscriptions and delete a Databricks account. This user is typically the person who signed up for your Databricks instance. If you don’t know who your account owner is, 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

Account admins can manage users, workspace storage, and access control for your Databricks instance. Admins can delegate admin privileges to other users.

Account admins use the Admin Console to view and change these properties. See the sections below for more details about the Admin Console.

Cloud Configuration Admins

Cloud configuration admins manage networking and security for your Databricks instance.
