What happens to the Workspace when deleting the user that created that workspace

Swoops

Hi,

Background:

In Azure-Datebricks:

We have a personal account that created a workspace, this workspace is our main workspace. The users Microsoft Office account is already deleted but the user still exist in Databricks.

Question 1 is:

  • What happens to this workspace if we delete the User? Will the Workspace be deleted?

Question 2 is:

  • Is it possible to change Workspace own to another account i.e. a service account.  If so how?

Question 3 is:

  • Is it possible to change Cluster-owner too? If so, how?

Best regards!

  • What happens to this workspace if we delete the User from workspace? Will the Workspace be deleted? → Workspace will not get deleted. It will continue to function.
  • Is it possible to change Workspace own to another account i.e. a service account. If so how? → We need to reach out to DB support to change the workspace owner.
  • Is it possible to change Cluster-owner too? If so, how? → You can use the change owner API
