ODBC Driver for Azure Data Management

Build 20.0.7587

Windows DSN Configuration

Using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator

You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to edit the DSN configuration. Note that the DSN is created during the installation process.

Complete the following steps to edit the DSN configuration:

  1. Select Start > Search, and enter ODBC Data Sources in the Search box.
  2. Choose the version of the ODBC Administrator that corresponds to the bitness of your application (32-bit or 64-bit).
  3. Click the System DSN tab.
  4. Select the system data source and click Configure.
  5. Edit the information on the Connection tab and click OK.

Note: For .NET Framework 4.0, the driver distributes Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable. For .NET Framework 3.5, the driver distributes Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable.

Authenticating to Azure Data Management

You can connect without setting any connection properties for your user credentials. Set the following properties:

  • SubscriptionId (optional): A subscription Id is required for Azure API Management endpoints, so if you do not specify one, the driver gets the first subscription Id available in your account.
  • Tenant (optional): Your tenant can be specified if you wish to authenticate to a different tenant than your default. This is required to work with a Subscription not on your default Tenant.

When you connect, the driver opens the Azure Data Management OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the driver. The driver then completes the OAuth process.

See Using OAuth Authentication for other OAuth authentication flows.

Connect using MSI Authentication

If you are running Azure Data Management on an Azure VM, you can leverage Managed Service Identity (MSI) credentials to connect:

  • AuthScheme: Set this to AzureMSI.

The MSI credentials will then be automatically obtained for authentication.
