Azure SQL Setup

  • Updated

The Azure SQL Synapse enables data synchronization between Azure SQL schema and Syncari entities. After the Synapse is authenticated, a user can activate the Azure SQL Synapse, which enables Syncari to replicate the schema of Azure SQL and make it available within the Unified Data Model. Using Sync Studio, a user can map Azure SQL tables to Syncari entities, and Azure SQL fields to Syncari fields.

If your Azure SQL security requires you to whitelist an IP you can find that here.
