Quickstart for Databricks Unity Catalog on PrivaceraCloud


Welcome to the PrivaceraCloud Databricks Unity Catalog Quickstart. You have landed on this page because you have set up a connection from your Databricks Workspace to PrivaceraCloud using Databricks Partner Connect. The Databricks Unity Catalog catalog you provided at setup will be used for this quickstart.

As part of connection setup, we created a schema (called sales_schema) in your catalog and created a table named sales_data that contains some data. Privacera access policies have been pre-created in your PrivaceraCloud account for these scenarios. These policies are disabled by default. In this quickstart, we will use this sample schema and table to enforce various access policies.

This quickstart will walk you through common access scenarios following a cause-and-effect flow. You will be asked to run a SQL query in the Databricks Workspace, see the result, then modify Privacera Policy. You will see the effects by re-running your SQL query in the Databricks Workspace.

To follow this quickstart, keep the Databricks Workspace in one browser tab and the PrivaceraCloud web portal in another browser tab.

This quickstart will cover the following access use cases against the sales_schema_secure tab:

  • Give a user full access to a table.

  • Give a user access to some columns of a table.

  • Give a user full access to a table but mask the contents of a column.

  • Give a user access to only certain rows of a table.
