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 uniquely with a 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.
