How to know, who started a job run?

MrJava

Hi there!

We have different jobs/workflows configured in our Databricks workspace running on AWS and would like to know who actually started the job run? Are they started by a user or a service principle using curl?

Currently one can only see, who is the owner and who created the job config but not who triggerd an actual run.

I tried to find something in the audit logs we have activated for the jobs but was not successful.

Any hints are highly welcome!

Hi!

I checked the cluster logs and looked under "Event log". Under the Event type CREATING the listed user is not who actually started the job. The name that is listed there is always the user that is given under "Run as" in the job config.

Had a look into the driver logs but did not see any user information. Could you please be more specific on where to look there or give me a search pattern I can look for?

I would like to check who started the job, not under which user the cluster will run.

Trying to find exactly the same information. No luck and no entries in search engines so far. Looking for a solution for this.

Hi, were you able to find the information on who started a job run? I'm also searching for this information but was not able to find it. Thanks!
