Databricks CLI and utilities

Databricks provides reference guides for the Databricks utilities and command-line interface:

  • Databricks Utilities (dbutils) make it easy to perform powerful combinations of tasks. You can use the utilities in notebooks to work with object storage efficiently, to chain and parameterize notebooks, and to work with secrets. dbutils are not supported outside of notebooks.

    To access the Databricks Utilities reference, go to Databricks Utilities.

  • The Databricks command-line interface (CLI) provides an easy-to-use interface to the Databricks platform. The open source project is hosted on GitHub and built on top of the Databricks REST API 2.0

    To access the CLI reference, go to Databricks CLI.

    Note

    The CLI is unavailable on Databricks on Google Cloud as of this release.
