Azure Data Lake Storage


You can use the Azure Data Lake Storage connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the Azure Data Lake Storage destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Azure Data Lake Storage, you first must establish a connection to Azure Data Lake Storage. Follow these steps to connect Azure Data Lake Storage to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Destinations tab and locate the Azure Data Lake Storage row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Azure Storage Account - Enter the name of your Azure storage account.

    • Auth Scheme - Select your authentication scheme below to proceed to the relevant section for your scheme. Then fill out the settings as specified in that section.

    • File Format - Select the file format that you want to use. The default value is CSV.

    • File System (optional) - Enter the name of the FileSystem that will be used in a Gen 2 account.

  6. Click Connect to Azure Data Lake Storage Destination to connect to Azure Data Lake Storage.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
