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.
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.
If you are using the free trial, click Start Trial.
Otherwise go straight to the next step.
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.
Go to the AWS Account tab and follow the instructions in Configure Your AWS Account to configure your AWS account to launch Databricks clusters.
When you are done, click Next Step.
Go to the AWS Storage tab and follow the instructions in Configure AWS Storage to configure AWS storage for your Databricks account-wide assets.
Agree to the Terms of Service and click Deploy. The deployment link displays.
Click the deployment link to log into Databricks.

If you signed up for the Standard Plan, which is the case if you are using the free trial, you may want to upgrade to the Operational Security package or convert to the Enterprise Plan to add security and other features that make it easier to manage your team’s Databricks usage. See Manage Your Subscription for more information.
Audit logging configuration
Databricks strongly recommends that you configure audit logging to monitor the activities performed and usage incurred by your Databricks users. See Configure Audit Logging for instructions.
