    Hello @Krushnakanth Lenka ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    Unfortunately, you cannot mount different Azure Subscription ADLS storage accounts in Azure Databricks.

    Workaround: You can use authenticate with the access key to access the ADLS storage accounts from different subscription as shown below:

    The way you set credentials for authentication depends on whether you plan to use the DataFrame or Dataset API, or the RDD API.


    For more details, refer to Get started with Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
