Azure Data Factory is a cloud-based data integration service that allows you to create, schedule, and orchestrate your data pipelines. In this blog post, I will show you how to create and run a simple Azure Data Factory pipeline that copies data from an Azure SQL Database to a CSV file stored in Azure Blob Storage.
First, create a new Azure Data Factory instance. Click the “Create a resource” link in the Azure portal, and then search for “data factory”.
Next, create a new Azure SQL Database. I used the Azure portal to create a new database named “adftutorial” with a server named “adftutorialserver”.
Now that we have an Azure SQL Database and an Azure Data Factory instance, we can create a pipeline to copy data from the database to a CSV file.
In the Azure Data Factory portal, click the “Author & Monitor” link.
In the “Author” pane, click the “Pipelines” tab, and then click the “New pipeline” button.
In the “Select a source” step, select “Azure SQL Database” as the source type, and select the “adftutorial” database as the source.
In the “Select a sink” step, select “Azure Blob Storage” as the sink type, and select the “adftutorial” container as the sink.
In the “Configure copy activity” step, select “CSV” as the file format, and then click the “Finish” button.
Now that the pipeline has been created, we can run it to copy the data from the database to the CSV file.
To run the pipeline, click the “Debug” button in the “Author” pane.
In the “Debug” pane, select the “adftutorial” pipeline, and then click the “Run” button.
The pipeline will now run, and you should see the status of the pipeline in the “Monitor” pane.
Once the pipeline has completed, you can view the CSV file in the Azure Blob Storage container.
That’s it! You have now created and run a simple Azure Data Factory pipeline.
