Create and manage your Databricks subscription

The Databricks account owner and account administrators can manage your Databricks subscription.

Quickstart: Start a Databricks free trial

These quickstart instructions describe how to subscribe to Databricks with a free trial subscription, which eventually becomes a pay-as-you-go subscription after the free trial expires. You can use these instructions if you are already familiar with setting up new applications in Google Marketplace.

For more detailed instructions, see Get started: Free trial & setup.

Note

If your company has a contract subscription, do not use these instructions. Ask your Databricks representative about how to create your subscription with a Google Marketplace Private Offer.

Overview

To get users up and running on your Databricks on Google Cloud account, you must:

  1. Create your Databricks subscription in Google, which creates a Databricks account.

  2. Create at least one Databricks workspace. A workspace is the environment that your team will use to access all of their Databricks assets. You must be an account admin to create a workspace.

  3. Add users and groups to your workspace.

Create a subscription

To create a free trial subscription of Databricks on Google Cloud:

  1. Confirm that you have access to:

    • A Google account that is enabled for Google Workspace or Cloud Identity.

    • A Google Cloud project with an associated Organization. If your Google Cloud organization policy enables domain restricted sharing, ensure that both the Google Cloud customer IDs for Databricks (C01p0oudw) and your own organization’s customer ID are in the policy’s allowed list.

    • An active Google Cloud billing account.

    • A Google IAM account with these roles:

      • Billing Administrator role on the billing account or on the Google Cloud organization of your project.

      • View role on the project associated with the billing account.

      For details about why Databricks uses each permission, see Required permissions.

  2. Review and set Google resource quotas for the Google Cloud project that you plan to use with your workspace to run clusters. If you change any quotas, wait 15 minutes after confirmation of the changes before you create a workspace.

  3. Optionally, if you plan to use large clusters or many workspaces, ensure that your workspaces will have sufficient IP space to run Databricks jobs by calculating your GKE subnet ranges by using the network sizing calculator. If you skip this step, defaults will be used.

  4. Go to the Databricks listing in the Google Cloud Marketplace.

  5. In the top navigation’s project picker, select the Google Cloud project that is associated with the billing account that you want to use with Databricks. This is not required to be the same project that you use to deploy your workspaces.

  6. Click Subscribe.

  7. Set the billing account.

  8. Review the term and conditions then click Subscribe.

  9. In the popup that says “Your order request has been sent to Databricks”, click Register with Databricks. Enter information that Databricks or Google Cloud Marketplace requests, including your organization name. You may be asked to authenticate and grant permissions to Databricks.

  10. You’ll automatically return to the Databricks listing in the Google Cloud Marketplace. At the top, click the blue button Manage on Provider. If the text still says Register with Databricks, wait five seconds, reload the page, then click Manage on Provider.

  11. Choose a plan. Initially you are on the Standard plan but you can upgrade to the Premium plan. Compare the different Databricks pricing plans. You can upgrade or downgrade your account’s plan at a later time, but be aware that upgrade and downgrade work differently for existing workspaces.

  12. You see the Databricks account console, where you create and manage your workspaces. Save the account console URL for later use.

Create and log in to a workspace

  1. Go to the account console.

  2. To create your first workspace, click Create workspace. See Create and manage workspaces using the account console. Save the workspace URL for your new workspace.

  3. Log in to your new workspace.

Watch the following video for an overview of this process.

Confirm or change your subscription plan

Note

This topic assumes you have a pay-as-you-go subscription that started as a free trial subscription. If you have a contract with Databricks, contact your Databricks representative for billing updates and questions.

You can compare the different Databricks pricing plans. You can upgrade or downgrade your plan.

There are important differences between upgrade and downgrade for your existing workspaces. Upgrading an account plan upgrades the plan for both current and future workspaces. Downgrading an account plan affects future workspaces but does not downgrade the plan for current workspaces. For questions before upgrading the account, contact your Databricks representative.

Important

Upgrading your account plan may permanently upgrade the plan for your existing workspaces.

  1. As the Databricks account owner or an account-level administrator, log in to the account console.

  2. In the sidebar, click Settings.

  3. Click Change plan. Below your plan, there is a green box with label Selected.

  4. Optionally change your plan.

    • To upgrade your plan, click Upgrade to Premium.

    • To downgrade your plan, contact your Databricks representative at sales@databricks.com. Click Contact us to downgrade to start an email to this address.

Confirm your billing account by using the order number

Your Databricks account is associated with a Google billing account. You can confirm which Google billing account was used for your Databricks subscription. This may be particularly important if your organization has multiple Databricks subscriptions or Google billing accounts. The best way to confirm the billing account is to get your subscription’s Google order number. Each order number associates a specific Databricks subscription with one specific Google billing account. Use the following steps to get the order number and to confirm the associated billing account.

  1. Get your Google order number from your Databricks account console:

    1. Access the account console

    2. In the left navigation, click Settings.

    3. In the Subscription & Billing tab, under the Billing heading, you see the Google order number associated with your Databricks subscription. Copy and save that order number for later use.

  2. Go to the Databricks listing on Google Cloud Marketplace. If you are not already signed in, click Sign in and authenticate.

  3. In the top navigation, click the project picker and select the Google Cloud project that is associated with your Google billing account that you want to use with Databricks. This is not required to be the same project that you use to deploy your workspaces.

  4. Using the marketplace search box, search for Databricks. Click Databricks.

  9. Review all orders and confirm that the information appears correct.

  10. Find the active order that you believe is associated with your Databricks subscription. Typical organizations have one active order, but in some cases large organizations may have more than one.

  11. The second column includes the order number. It is truncated so you cannot see its full value. To copy the full order number to the clipboard, click the copy order number button.

  12. Paste and save that value into the same place you saved the order ID that you got from the Databricks account console.

  13. Confirm that the two order IDs match.

    • If they match, you successfully confirmed which Google billing account and Google order number are associated with your subscription. Save the billing account name and the order number for future communication with your Databricks representative.

    • If they do not match, contact your Databricks representative.
