Start a Cluster

Apart from creating a new cluster, you can also start a previously terminated cluster. This lets you re-create a previously terminated cluster with its original configuration.

You can start a cluster from the

  • Cluster list

  • Cluster detail page


You can also invoke the Start API endpoint to programmatically start a cluster.

Azure Databricks identifies a cluster with a unique cluster ID. When you start a terminated cluster, Databricks re-creates the cluster with the same ID, automatically installs all the libraries, and re-attaches the notebooks.


If you are using a Trial workspace and the trial has expired, you will not be able to start a cluster.
