Microsoft Azure Data Lake Gen2 SAS Token Writeback Connector

Version 3



Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is a set of capabilities dedicated to big data analytics, built on Azure Blob storage. Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is the result of converging the capabilities of the two existing storage services, Azure Blob storage and Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1. Use Domo's Azure Data Lake Gen2 SAS Token Writeback connector to export your data from a Domo dataset to your Microsoft Azure Data Lake Gen2 container. For more information about Microsoft Azure Data Lake Gen2, see  

You export data to a Azure Data Lake Gen2 in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Microsoft Azure Data Lake Gen2 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.


To configure this connector, you need the following:

  • Your Microsoft Azure Data Lake storage account name

  • The Shared Access Signature (SAS) Token

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Azure Data Lake Gen2 SAS Token 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 Azure Data Lake file system (container). The following table describes what is needed for each field:  



Account Name Enter your Microsoft Azure Data Lake storage account name.
Shared Access Signature (SAS) Token Enter the shared access signature token.

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to set up a new Domo-Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 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 primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.



Input DataSet ID

Enter the DataSet ID (GUID) for the DataSet you want to copy to the selected Azure Data Lake Storage file system (container). You can find the ID by opening the details view for the DataSet in the Data Center and looking at the portion of the URL following datasources/. Example, in the URL, the DataSet ID is 845305d8-da3d-4107-a9d6-13ef3f86d4a4.

File System Name Enter the file system name where you wish to upload the file. A file system acts as a container for your files.
Select Filename Select whether you want to reference your DataSet using the Input DataSet ID or an output file name.
Filename Enter the output file name for your data.
