Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 as a target

You can load from any source to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (ADLS Gen2). AutoSync transforms objects and tables to CSV, JSON, or Parquet files—each to a file with the same name. Supply new ADLS Gen2 credentials in the wizard or select saved credentials. The account must have write permissions for the file storage location.

Supported Account types

Designer and Classic Manager provide multiple account types for most endpoints and not all types are compatible with AutoSync. When you create or edit a data pipeline, the existing credentials list only includes compatible Accounts.

For ADLS Gen2, AutoSync supports:

  • Binary Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 OAuth2 Account

Supported load types

  • Full load

If you are a member of a user group, you can select it from the dropdown. You can also select the global shared folder, which shares the credentials with everyone in your Org.
  • Validate and save: After saving and validating, AutoSync adds the configuration to the list of saved credentials.
