Connection Notes

  • The connection string for Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is an account access token that you can generate from within the Azure Portal.

  • Please note that a file definition that uses this connection needs to specify a particular container or a directory in the container as the path. If you specify a container or directory in your path that does not yet exist, it will be created in the Azure Data Lake Storage Connection when the task using it is run.

  • When exporting into Parquet, if it is not specified in the connection string, Azure Data Lake Storage will default to a LOCAL offset value for any datetime offset columns. You can change the format of the datetime offset using the configuration settings here and adding it to your connection string.
