                Databricks 2.1 API

The Databricks 2.1 API is a REST API that allows you to programmatically interact with Databricks Jobs, enabling greater automation and control over your data processing workflows.

Key features and improvements of the 2.1 API:

  • Multi-task format: This format allows you to define complex workflows with multiple tasks, dependencies, and different configurations for each task.
  • Task-level clusters: Optimize resource usage and reduce costs by creating and terminating clusters for each task individually.
  • Shared job clusters: Improve efficiency when tasks have similar resource requirements by sharing the same cluster among multiple tasks.
  • Update request: Modify existing jobs without resetting them, minimizing disruption to your workflows.
