Release 6.8.2



In the Designer Cloud® application, the ADLS Gen2 browser enables you to browse, specify, and filter the files to which you have access on ADLS Gen2.

The ADLS Gen2 browser appears when you choose to import a dataset from ADLS Gen2. See Import Data Page.

NOTE: Interactions with ADLS Gen2 are determined by user permissions and features enabled in the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform. For more information, see Using ADLS.

Figure: ADLS Gen2 Browser

Browse ADLS Gen2:

Use the links and icons to browse for files and folders in the ADLS Gen2 tree structure. Use the breadcrumb trail to back out.

NOTE: Avoid using the Back button on your browser, which exits the ADLS Gen2 browser without applying changes to your configuration.


  • Click the Plus icon to select all readable files in this folder.
  • Click the text link to open the folder and browse further.

    Tip: When you open a new folder, a reference to it is added to the Path value. You can modify the path value manually, which may be a faster way to navigate up a deep directory structure.

    Tip: Sizes are displayed next to files. They are not displayed next to folders.


Click the Plus icon to select this file.

Specify ADLS Gen2 Path:

In the ADLS Gen2 browser, you can specify an explicit path to resources.

Tip: If you have access to multiple filestores or storage accounts, you can paste the URI path to top level of your target.

Click the Pencil icon, paste the path value, and click Go.

Filter Files:

To display a subset of files, enter a string in the Search box. The filter is applied as you type and matches anywhere in the name of a currently displayed file or folder.
