Permissions Overview

Each permission includes the following access levels:

  • Can List: Grants permission to view a list of resources.

  • Can Create: Provides permission to create new resources.

  • Can Manage: Offers the ability to edit, remove, or manage select or all resources. This includes the option to Start and Terminate the Lakehouse.

  • Can View: Allows users to view detailed information about a resource.

Groups can have roles assigned, and all users in a group automatically inherit the group's role.


After being assigned the role, log in to the current user account. Navigate to the lakehouse list and click on test-lakehouse. You can view the lakehouse, but you can't manage it.
