To connect faster to Prophecy, use Partner Connect.

Requirements

To complete this series of steps, you need a Databricks personal access token.

Note

As a security best practice, when authenticating with automated tools, systems, scripts, and apps, Databricks recommends you use access tokens belonging to service principals instead of workspace users. For more information, see Service principals for Databricks automation.

Steps to connect

To connect to Prophecy manually, do the following:

  1. Sign in to your Prophecy account, or create a new Prophecy account, at https://app.prophecy.io.

    Important

    If you sign in to your organization’s Prophecy account, there may already be a list of existing fabric entries.
