Databricks Unity Catalog FAQs

What do I need to do in my Databricks Workspace?

To run this quickstart, in the sidebar drop-down of your Databricks Workspace, choose the SQL persona. This will enable you to see the SQL Editor and Data (Explorer) options in the sidebar.

Does Privacera support authorization for Databricks service principals?

  • Yes, Privacera version 7.8 and above supports Databricks service principals in Plug-In as well as in PolicySync Connectors.

  • Add a user for the service principal in Apache Ranger. The username should be the application id, and the user should have an attribute called databricks_service_principal with the value true.

  • Create a policy with the application id as a user, and connector will grant the permission to the service principal.
