Vantage integrates with your Databricks account through the use of Billable Usage Logs. Vantage provides an S3 bucket for Databricks to deliver usage logs to on a periodic basis. Databricks delivers cost-only data to the bucket, outlining the Databricks service used, usage in Databricks Units (DBU), and metadata related to workspace, cluster, and any related tags.

Create the Connection

Finalize Your Databricks Account Setup

Vantage will prepare an S3 bucket to store your Databricks billable usage logs. You will need to configure Databricks to deliver your usage logs to that bucket.

  1. Install or update the Databricks CLI.

  2. Configure authentication for the Databricks CLI:


    The below steps are based on the OAuth user-to-machine (U2M) authentication Databricks documentation.

    Create ~/.databrickscfg. Replace <ACCOUNT_ID> with the value of your Databricks account. (See the Databricks documentation for how to locate your account ID.) Replace the <ADMIN_USERNAME> and <ADMIN_PASSWORD> with your account administrator user's credentials.

    host =
    account_id = <ACCOUNT_ID>
    username = <ADMIN_USERNAME>
    password = <ADMIN_PASSWORD>
  3. Initiate OAuth token management with the following command, replacing ACCOUNT_ID with the account ID you used in the last step:

    databricks auth login --host --account-id <ACCOUNT_ID>
  4. Follow the remaining instructions provided on the Finalize Your Databricks Account Setup page in Vantage. These instructions will walk you step by step through creating a storage configuration, creating a credential configuration, and creating a log delivery configuration to finalize the integration.

After completing all the steps above, your Databricks integration status should automatically update from Pending to Importing. Once fully imported, the status will update to Imported. You can view your connection status on the Databricks Settings page.

Databricks generally delivers usage logs once per day.

Databricks Reporting Dimensions

Databricks Cost Reports enable you to filter Databricks costs across several dimensions:

  • Account
  • Category
  • Tag
  • Not tagged

The Tag filter contains values like JobID, which can be used to view costs for specific Databricks jobs.
