How do I get the Azure Databricks Workspace name in the databricks CLI. I have workspaces defined for various environments and I want to get the workspace name while running secretscope to ensure that the current session is indeed pointing to the correct workspace.


databricks secrets list-scopes --profile Dev


Scope Backend KeyVault URL

DataEngKV-Dev-secretscope AZURE_KEYVAULT

    Hello @Gopinath Rajee ,

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

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to get the workspace name using CLI or APIs.

    I found this solution, which is not very elegant, but the owner of the post had to go through the Azure Resource API and parse the results to get the Workspace Name. The good news is that this can be executed from a Notebook:

    Do you have profiles configured for each environment? just add --profile <PROFILE> to your command and it will run in that workspace.

    When you create a profile for each workspace and then call databricks secret put X Y --profile my_ws_profile_name

    If you don't supply a profile argument, it will always use the default (whatever is marked [DEFAULT] in the .databrickscfg file / stored in your environment variables)

    If there is no default (eg first time running CLI) it will prompt you and create one.

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