Azure SQL Entra Dynamic Account

In this article


You can use this account type to connect Azure SQL Snaps with data sources that use Azure SQL Entra Dynamic Account.

Dynamic Account types support Secrets Management, a SnapLogic add-on that allows you to store endpoint credentials in a third-party secrets manager. Orgs using Secrets Management provide the information necessary to retrieve the secrets in expression-enabled dynamic Account fields. During validation and execution, Pipelines obtain the credentials directly from the secrets manager. Learn more about Secrets Management.
