Thank you in advance.

Hi @RozaZaharievaTo retrieve the Azure Databricks Account ID without manual intervention, you can use the following methods:

  1. Azure CLI: You can use the Azure CLI to query the account details. Run the following command to get the account ID:

    az databricks workspace show --resource-group <resource-group-name> --name <databricks-workspace-name> --query 'id'

    Replace <resource-group-name> and <databricks-workspace-name> with your actual resource group and Databricks workspace names.

  2. Terraform: If you’re managing your infrastructure with Terraform, you can use the azurerm_databricks_workspace resource to retrieve the account ID. Here’s an example snippet:

    data "azurerm_databricks_workspace" "example" {
      name                = "<databricks-workspace-name>"
      resource_group_name = "<resource-group-name>"
    output "databricks_account_id" {
      value =

    Again, replace <resource-group-name> and <databricks-workspace-name> with your actual values.

  3. Other Methods:

    • You can also use the Databricks CLI with appropriate authentication methods (OAuth, managed identities, etc.) to programmatically retrieve the account ID.
    • If you’re using a custom script or automation, consider using the Databricks REST API to fetch the account details.

Remember to replace the placeholders with your actual resource group and workspace names. These methods allow you to obtain the Azure Databricks Account ID programmatically, avoiding manual steps. 🚀

For more details, refer to the official documentation.1


Hi there,

I would prefer the REST API way, but I cannot find any method to fetch the account details. Do you know which one I should use?

Thank you.

I am also looking for a solution to this. The path suggested by @Kaniz_Fatma does not work! When I run the proposed az cli, this is what I get:


$> az databricks workspace show --resource-group $my_rg --name $my_ws --query 'id'



This is not the account ID that is needed for the account API. So this is not a solution. Since terraform and REST API are directly aligned with the cli, the result is the same. So at present there is no solution to this. Unless anyone has any other suggestions?
