Manage your Azure Databricks account

This article describes the settings available to account admins on the account console.

Azure Databricks accounts are managed both through the Azure Databricks account console and the Azure Portal. In the account console, account admins manage Unity Catalog metastores, users and groups, and various account-level settings including feature enablement, email preferences, language settings, and account naming.

The Azure Portal is where users with the Azure Contributor or Owner role on the Azure Databricks service can create workspaces, manage their subscription, and configure diagnostic logging. In Azure, the unique resource ID for the Azure Databricks service is 2ff814a6-3304-4ab8-85cb-cd0e6f879c1d.

To enable access to the account console, you must establish your account’s first account admin following Establish your first account admin.

You can manage whether you receive these emails in the account console:

  1. Log in to the account console and click the Settings icon in the sidebar.

You can also manage your promotional email communications by clicking Manage under Promotional email communications or by going to the Marketing preference center. Non-admin users can update this setting by clicking the My preferences link next to their workspace in the account console.

Enable notifications for Azure Databricks customer support messages

Messages from the Azure Databricks support team appear as service notifications in the customer’s Azure Portal. Databricks recommends setting up alerts for service notifications so you can know when you receive a message. You set up alerts for service notifications in the Azure Service Health service in the Azure portal. See Create activity log alerts on service notifications.

Move workspace between tenants (unsupported)

Currently, Azure Databricks does not support moving workspaces to a new tenant. If you move your workspaces to another tenant in Azure, the workspace will remain in the Azure Databricks account associated with the original tenant ID.
