Start Cluster

The Start Cluster component lets you poll the environment default Databricks cluster to confirm the cluster is running, or else continues polling the cluster at a specified interval (in seconds) until the cluster is running. If the cluster fails to start, the component will fail.

Use this component to confirm your Databricks cluster is running before executing further components (for example, in a scheduled job).


A previous version of this component allowed you to select a specific cluster to connect to. This component is now deprecated, but older jobs built using it will continue to run correctly.


Name = string

A human-readable name for the component.

Poll Interval (seconds) = integer

The polling interval to Databricks. The default is 5 seconds.
