This account is used by the Snaps in the Azure SQL Snap Pack.

You can create an account from Designer or Manager. In Designer, when working on Pipelines, every Snap that needs an account prompts you to create a new account or use an existing account. The accounts can be created in or used from:

  • Your private project folder: This folder contains the Pipelines that will use the account.
  • Your Project Space’s shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users that belong to the Project Space.
  • The global shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users within an organization in the SnapLogic instance.

Account Configuration

In Manager, you can navigate to the required folder and create an account in it (see Accounts). To create an account for binary files:

  1. Click Create, then select any Azure SQL Account:
    • Azure SQL Account
    • Azure SQL Dynamic Account
    • Azure SQL Active Directory Account

    • Azure SQL Active Directory Dynamic Account

  2. Supply an account label.
  3. Supply the account properties for your database.
  4. (Optional) Supply additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab.
  5. Click Apply.
Warning

Avoid changing account credentials while Pipelines using them are in progress. This may lead to unexpected results, including locking the account.


Note
If the Snap fails to connect to the database, it will retry three more times. 

You can Validate an account connection when creating a Azure SQL/Active Directory Account but not when creating a Azure SQL/Active Directory Dynamic Account because the account properties of a dynamic account are provided dynamically as Pipeline parameters.

The difference between Azure SQL/Active Directory Account and Azure SQL/Active Directory Dynamic Account is that in the latter you can specify the Account properties as expressions referencing Pipeline parameters.

Active Directory-based authentication is not supported in the Azure SQL Bulk Extract Snap.

Auto commit

When selected, each of the batches is committed immediately after it is executed. If the Snap fails, only the batch being executed at that moment is rolled back.

When deselected, the Snap execution output is committed only after all the batches are executed. If the Snap fails, the entire transaction is rolled back, unless the Snap finds invalid input data before it sends the insert request to the server, and routes the error documents to the Error view.

Default value: Selected

Batch size

Required. Number of statements to execute at a time.

Note

Select queries are not batched.


Warning

Using a large batch size could use up the JDBC placeholder limit of 2100.

Default value: 50

Fetch size

Required. Number of rows to fetch at a time when executing a query.

Warning

Large values could cause the server to run out of memory.

Default value: 100

Max pool size

Required. Maximum number of connections a pool will maintain at a time.
