Azure SQL Database

Version 24.2.8969

Azure SQL Database

You can use the Azure SQL Database connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the Azure SQL Database 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 SQL Database, you first must establish a connection to Azure SQL Database. Follow these steps to connect Azure SQL Database 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 SQL Database 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.

    • Server - Enter the name of the data source to which you want to connect.

    • Database - Enter the name of the intial catalog or database in your data source.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to Azure SQL DataBase.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to Azure SQL DataBase.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

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

Note: The Java version requires the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver. You can download the driver from the Microsoft Download Center.

Copy the JDBC driver into the libs directory and restart the server.
