Manage Unity Catalog object ownership in Catalog Explorer

You can use Catalog Explorer to change the owner for securable objects in Unity Catalog-enabled Databricks workspaces. Object ownership can be transferred to other principals by either the current owner, a metastore admin, or the owner of the catalog or schema that contains the table. See Manage Unity Catalog object ownership.
