Manage instance profile access in Databricks

This article explains how to manage access to an instance profile in a workspace. Like other workspace assets, you can manage user and group access to instance profiles. This allows admins working in their Databricks workspace to control who has access to the S3 bucket.

Manage access to instance profiles

In the instance profile details, you can specify which users, groups, or service principals have permissions to launch clusters with the instance profile:

  1. Go to the admin settings page.

  2. Click the Instance Profiles tab.

  3. Select the instance profile you want to update.

  4. In the dropdown below the instance profile details, select or enter the user, group, or service principal:

    Add users
  5. Click Add.

Assign an instance profile to a group

Alternatively, you can assign the instance profiles directly to groups on the Groups tab of the admin settings page:

  1. Select the group you want to update.

  2. On the Instance Profiles tab, click + Add Instance Profiles to group.

  3. On the Add Instance Profiles dialog, click the down arrow to display a drop-down list of instance profiles, and select the ones you want to add.

  4. Click the down arrow to hide the drop-down list.

  5. Click Add.
