AzureDevOps and Databricks Connection using managed identity or service principal

New Contributor

Hi All!  Im in a project where i need to connect azure devops and databricks using managed identity to avoid the using of service account, PAT, etc.

The thing is i cant move forward with the connection since i cannot take the ownership of the files when i clone the repos, i need the managed identity to be owner of the files clones from azure devops

Is there a way to do that?

Thank you in advance

Hi @TitaMnConnecting Azure DevOps and Azure Databricks using managed identity is a great approach to enhance security and avoid using service accounts or personal access tokens (PATs).

Let’s explore some options:

  1. Azure Managed Identity for Databricks:

  2. Access Connector for Azure Databricks:

    • While managed identity is a good option, you might also consider using the Access Connector for Azure Databricks. However, be aware that some users find it less secure3.
    • To set up the Access Connector:
      • Log in to the Azure Portal as a Contributor or Owner of a resource group.
      • Search for “Access Connector for Azure Databricks” and create it.
      • Configure the necessary fields and create the connector.
  3. Data Factory Integration:

If you encounter any specific issues during the setup, feel free to seek further assistance. Good luck with your project! 😊🚀
