Microsoft Azure Data Lake Writeback Connector

Intro

Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store is an enterprise-wide hyper-scale repository for big data analytic workloads. Use this connector to export your data from a Domo DataSet into an Azure Data Lake Store. For more information about Azure's API, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azu...ta-lake-store/

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

  • Your Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store tenant ID.

  • Your Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store client ID.

  • Your Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store client secret.

To obtain Azure credentials, please reach out to your Microsoft account representative. 

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 Data Lake 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 Data Lake Store. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
