Databricks Cluster-Scoped Init Scripts

Aayush Bhasin shares some background on a Databricks intern project, adding cluster-scoped initialization scripts to Databricks clusters:

One of the biggest pain points for customers used to be that init scripts for a cluster were not part of the cluster configuration and did not show up in the User Interface. Because of this, applying init scripts to a cluster was unintuitive, and editing or cloning a cluster would not preserve the init script configuration. Cluster-scoped init scripts addressed this issue by including an ‘Init Scripts’ panel in the UI of the cluster configuration page, and adding an ‘init_scripts’ field to the public API. This also allows init scripts to take advantage of cluster access control.

Read on to see how Aayush & co. solved this issue.
