Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Writeback Connector

Intro

Microsoft Azure Blob Storage is designed to easily and efficiently store any type of unstructured data, such as images, videos, audio, and documents. Use this connector to export your data from a Domo DataSet into an Azure Blob container. To learn more about the Azure Blob Storage API, visit their page (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/res...rvice-rest-api).

You export data to Azure Blob Storage in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Azure Blob Storage Writeback connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To configure this connector, you will need the following:

  • A Domo Client ID and Client Secret.

  • The name and key for your Azure Blob Storage account. 

The following steps explain in detail how to create your project and obtain the needed credentials. 

To create a Domo client ID and client secret, do the following:

  1. Navigate to https://developer.domo.com and log in.

  2. Click New Client (found under "My Account" in the top right corner).

  3. Create a new client with Application Scopes of Data and User.

    When you click Create, you will be redirected to the client ID and client secret.

  4. Copy the client ID and client secret, as you will need them soon.

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Azure Blob Storage Writeback Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Domo developer account as well as your Azure Blob Storage container. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Domo Client ID

Paste your Domo client ID. For more information, see "Prerequisites," above.

Domo Client Secret

Paste your Domo client secret. For more information, see "Prerequisites," above.

Account Name

Enter the name of the Azure Blob Storage account you want to connect to.

Account Key

Enter the account key for the Azure Blob Storage account you want to connect to. 

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to set up a new Domo-Azure Blob Storage connection. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a number of fields for specifying your data and indicating where it's going.
