Microsoft Azure Data Lake Store
|Type of Support:||Read & Write|
|Connection Type:||Alteryx Tool. The latest version is available from the Alteryx Analytics Gallery.|
Depending on the chosen login method, an administrator may need to configure access to Azure Data Lake and Azure Active Directory before a connection can be made using the Alteryx Azure Data Lake tools.
The Azure Data Lake Store allows you to connect to an Azure Data Lake resource and read/write data. These tools authenticate against an Azure Active Directory endpoint.
Alteryx tools used to connect
- If in a state without access (read/write) to a certain folder created by another account, this is due to permissions.
- If you encounter an error that states the token may have been revoked, you must log out/back in to the configuration panel to reauthenticate.
Avro byte Field Type
Avro files with fields of type bytes are not supported and will fail upon import.
Output: Alteryx float Field to Avro Type Conversion
Alteryx workflow float field values are converted to double in the destination Avro file.
|Multiple Connectors with Different Azure Active Directory User Accounts||
The Microsoft Azure Data Lake, OneDrive, and Dynamics CRM connectors support authentication via Microsoft user credentials such as email and password. In interactive workflows, it is not currently possible to authenticate with different Microsoft user accounts across these connectors. This limitation does not impact scheduled workflows. In the case that you are authenticated with a Microsoft user account in one of these connectors and try to authenticate to another connector with a different Microsoft user account, you will see an error message pop-up. To resolve this issue, follow on of these recommendations:
The Azure Data Lake Explorer must grant permissions to read and write data within an Azure Data Lake Store account. For more information about how these permissions are assigned and applied, please visit the official Microsoft documentation.
