Set up and deploy your Databricks account

As a Databricks account owner, you must set up your account, including billing details (if you are a credit-card customer) and your host AWS account configuration, before you deploy your Databricks workspace. The account owner is the only user who can perform these tasks.

Required setup steps

  1. Log in to your Databricks workspace.

    How you get your initial account owner login ID and password depends on the way you signed up for Databricks. In most cases, you will receive a Welcome email. Follow the the link in the email to verify your email address and change your temporary password. Click Change Password to open the Account Console.

  2. If you are a free trial customer logging in to the Account Console for the first time, confirm your plan selection and click Select Plan.

    Free trial customers are added to the Premium plan by default, but you can downgrade to the Standard plan before you click Select Plan. For details, see Sign up for a free Databricks trial.

    Otherwise go straight to the next step.

  3. If you are on a pay-as-you-go account, go to the Billing Details tab and fill in your billing name, address, and credit card information, then click Next Step.

    If you are on any other plan, go straight to the next step.

  4. Go to the AWS Account tab and follow the instructions in Configure your AWS account (cross-account IAM role) to configure your AWS account to launch Databricks clusters.

    When you are done, click Next Step.

  5. Go to the AWS Storage tab and follow the instructions in Configure AWS storage to configure AWS storage for your Databricks account-wide assets.

  6. Agree to the Terms of Service and click Deploy. The deployment link displays.

  7. Click the deployment link to log into Databricks.

  8. Log into Databricks using the credentials you supplied when you registered. You’ll see the Databricks landing page.
