Hi Team,

can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to create role-based access and attribute-based access in Databricks.

Hi @Phani1, Here’s how you can set them up:


  1. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC):
    • Overview: RBAC allows you to define roles and assign permissions to users, groups, or service principals. These roles determine what actions users can perform within Databricks.
    • Workspace-Level Securable Objects:
      • Access Control Lists (ACLs): Configure permissions for workspace objects such as folders, notebooks, experiments, models, clusters, pools, jobs, Delta Live Tables pipelines, alerts, dashboards, queries, and SQL warehouses.
      • Admin Roles and Entitlements: Assigned directly to users, service principals, and groups.
    • Account-Level Securable Objects:
      • Account Role-Based Access Control: Configure permissions for account-level objects like service principals and groups. These roles apply across all workspaces.
    • Data Securable Objects:
  2. Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC):
    • Overview: ABAC uses attributes (metadata) to define access policies. It evaluates attributes associated with users, resources, and actions to determine access.
    • Example:
      • Suppose you want to grant access to specific data based on attributes like department, location, or project. ABAC allows you to create policies like “Allow read access to HR data for employees in the HR department.”
    • Implementation:
      • Define attributes (e.g., department, project) and associate them with users, resources, and actions.
      • Create policies based on attribute conditions (e.g., “If user.department = ‘HR’, allow read access to HR data”).
      • Evaluate policies dynamically during access requests2.

Remember that access control is essential for maintaining data security and compliance. Feel free to explore Databricks documentation for detailed instructions on configuring ACLs, account.... If you have specific scenarios or need further assistance, feel free to ask! 🚀
