Hi, is it possible to add custom tags from init script during cluster initialization ? We would like to automatically add custom tags whenever someone creates a new cluster in databricks.

Cluster policy permissions limit which policies a user can select in the Policy drop-down when the user creates a cluster:

  • A user who has cluster create permission can select the Unrestricted policy and create fully-configurable clusters.
  • A user who has both cluster create permission and access to cluster policies can select the Unrestricted policy and policies they have access to.
  • A user that has access to only cluster policies, can select the policies they have access to.

Hi @Md Tahseen Anam​ I don't think there is a possibility to use an init script for cust tags. But the easiest way is to use cluster policies. You can mention a list of custom tags in the policy so that you can simply add the policy to the cluster while creating. Other than the tags, you can set the DBR version, spark configs, etc using the cluster policy.

Thanks for your reply. I think cluster policy can be a way to do that if I can force user to select that policy by auto-selecting the policy for them whenever they try to create a new cluster and disabling users from selecting any other policy. Can I do that ?
