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.
Account admins (E2 accounts only), who can perform the same account management tasks as account owners.
Databricks workspace admins, who manage workspace users and groups—including single sign-on, provisioning, access to SQL Analytics, 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.
