The Databricks Lakehouse Platform
The SlashDB Databricks plugin adds support for Databricks databases, further extending SlashDB's generated REST API.
SlashDB version >= 1.5.0 must be installed before the plugin can be installed. If you don't have SlashDB yet, see the chapter "Installation" for details.
From System Package
If SlashDB was installed from the DEB or RPM package, or if you have SlashDB running from a virtual machine or cloud images, then the easiest way to add Databricks support is by downloading and installing the corresponding plugin package of the same type.
wget https://downloads.slashdb.com/versions/1.6.46/slashdb-databricks_1.0.0_amd64.deb sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y ./slashdb-databricks_1.0.0_amd64.deb
wget https://downloads.slashdb.com/versions/1.6.46/slashdb-databricks-1.0.0.x86_64.rpm sudo dnf install -y ./slashdb-databricks-1.0.0.x86_64.rpm
Once installation is complete SlashDB will automatically be restarted for changes to take the effect.
From Python Wheel
If SlashDB was installed as a Python package then it's best to also install the Databricks plugin as a Python package in the same environment.
Available wheel packages:
Download and install the package that matches your version of Python, for example:
wget https://downloads.slashdb.com/versions/1.6.46/slashdb_databricks-1.0.0-cp36-cp36m-manylinux2014_x86_64.whl /opt/slashdb/bin/pip install ./slashdb_databricks-1.0.0-cp36-cp36m-manylinux2014_x86_64.whl
After installation SlashDB has to be restarted accordingly to the custom setup.
Uploading a license valid for Databricks
Log in as admin and in the top menu go to Configure > License.
Unless your license allows connecting to Databricks databases you will see a padlock icon which means you need to upload a valid license.
If you need a license please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you already have a license please see how to correctly install it at the chapter "License".
When the new license is uploaded you will see Databricks highlighted in green which means you will be able to add connections to Databricks data lakes.

Add new database configuration to SlashDB
Most steps for adding a connection to Databricks are the same as for other database types with a few differences mixed in.
- Inside of Configuration -> Databases click the blue button in the top right that says "+ New".
- From the list of available database connections click on the Databricks logo.
- Fill the form with Databricks credentials.
- Click "Test Connection" to verify the connection to the server is valid.
- Proceed according to the chapter "Adding a new database".
