Dear community, I want to configure the unity catalog with databricks, but the Create MetaStore button does not appear in my Azure Databricks workspace.

In the community, I have seen that several users present the same situation ... What is the reason for this problem?

@Eddynson Vega​ above create metastore option will not be visible in your workspace, when you login as admin to above link that i posted then only you can see that create metastore option .

workspace url will be different and account console will be different

I have tried login with the above URL (https://accounts.azuredatabricks.net/login) many times with admin account. The issue remains the same. the Create Metastore button is not available, and we are in the premium plan.

Hello Databricks @Rajesh Paul​ , I already found the solution: To login as an administrator (https://accounts.azuredatabricks.net/login), it is necessary to have the role of global administrator on the azure subscription, otherwise it will never appear.
