Access control lists

This article describes details about the permissions available for the different workspace objects.

Note

Access control requires the Premium plan.

Access control settings are disabled by default on workspaces that are upgraded from the Standard plan to the Premium plan. Once an access control setting is enabled, it can not be disabled. For more information, see Access controls lists can be enabled on upgraded workspaces.

Access control lists overview

In Databricks, you can use access control lists (ACLs) to configure permission to access workspace level objects. Workspace admins have the CAN MANAGE permission on all objects in their workspace, which gives them the ability to manage permissions on all objects in their workspaces. Users automatically have the CAN MANAGE permission for objects that they create.

For an example of how to map typical personas to workspace-level permissions, see the Proposal for Getting Started With Databricks Groups and Permissions.

Manage access control lists with folders

You can manage workspace object permissions by adding objects to folders. Objects in a folder inherit all permissions settings of that folder. For example, a user that has the CAN RUN permission on a folder has CAN RUN permission on the alerts in that folder. To learn about organizing objects into folders, see Workspace browser.
