Configure Delta storage credentials


To configure Delta storage credentials, see Configure access to cloud object storage for Databricks. Databricks no longer recommends passing storage credentials through DataFrame options as described in this article.

Databricks stores data for Delta Lake tables in cloud object storage. Configuring access to cloud object storage requires permissions within the cloud account that contains your storage account.

Pass storage credentials as DataFrame options

Delta Lake supports specifying storage credentials as options for DataFrameReader and DataFrameWriter. You might use this if you need to interact with data in several storage accounts governed by different access keys.


This feature is available in Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS and above.

For example, you can pass your storage credentials through DataFrame options:

    spark.conf.set("", "true")
df1 = \
  .option("", "<client-email-1>") \
  .option("", "<project-id-1>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-1>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-id-1>") \
df2 = \
  .option("", "<client-email-2>") \
  .option("", "<project-id-2>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-2>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-id-2>") \
df1.union(df2).write \
  .mode("overwrite") \
  .option("", "<client-email-3>") \
  .option("", "<project-id-3>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-3>") \
  .option("", "<private-key-id-3>") \
      spark.conf.set("", "true")

val df1 =
  .option("", "<client-email-1>")
  .option("", "<project-id-1>")
  .option("", "<private-key-1>")
  .option("", "<private-key-id-1>")
val df2 =
  .option("", "<client-email-2>")
  .option("", "<project-id-2>")
  .option("", "<private-key-2>")
  .option("", "<private-key-id-2>")
  .option("", "<client-email-3>")
  .option("", "<project-id-3>")
  .option("", "<private-key-3>")
  .option("", "<private-key-id-3>")
