New admin question: How do you enable R on a existing cluster?

Hello Community. I have a user trying to use R and receive the error message illustrated on the attachment. I can't seem to find correct documentation on enabling R on an existing cluster. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction? Thank you.

Hello Joaquim,

Your issue might be related to the access mode of your cluster which probably has been selected to be Shared Access Mode.

Shared cluster only allows Python, SQL and Scala languages, you might need to change the access mode to be Single User or No Isolation Shared Clusters.

For more information you can refer to https://docs.databricks.com/en/compute/configure.html#access-modes
