You can create a connection to a Microsoft Azure SQL Database from Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition. This section describes how to create connections of this type.
- This connection type supports data ingestion into ADLS/WASB. When large volumes of data are read from an Azure SQL Database during job execution, the data is stored in a temporary location in ADLS/WASB. After the job has been executed, the data is removed from the datastore. This process is transparent to the user.
- For more information on Azure SQL Database, see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/sql-database/.
NOTE: This database connection is a specialized version of a SQL Server connection.
NOTE: For Azure deployments, some additional configuration properties must be applied. See Configure for Azure .
