Connect to Azure blob storage
To use Azure blob storage as a data source or destination for your synthetic data, you need to create an Azure connector in MOSTLY AI.
If you want to keep your generated synthetic data in a separate Azure blob container, you need to create a second connector that points to that container.
- From the Connectors tab, click Create connector. The Create connector drawer appears on the right.
- On the Connect to cloud storage tab, select Azure storage.
- On the Create Azure connector page, configure the connector.
For Connector name, enter a name that you can distinguish from other connectors.💡
A combination of
_CONTAINER_might help you identify this connector among other Google Cloud storage connectors.
For Connection type, select whether you want to use the connector as a source or destination.
You can select only data source connectors when you create a new catalog.
Similarly, you can select only data destination connectors when you configure a destination for the new synthetic dataset.
For Account name, enter your Azure account name.
For Account key, enter your Azure account key.
For Container, enter the name of the Azure blob storage container.
- Click Test connection to make sure the configuration is correct. If you see a successful connection message, then MOSTLY AI connected to Azure blob storage successfully and found the provided container.
- Click Save to save your new Azure blob storage connector.
You can now use the Azure blob storage connector as a data source when you create a new catalog.
You can also use the Azure blob storage connector as a destination.
You can use different types of data sources and destinations for a synthetic dataset. For example, if your data source is a Azure blob storage database, you can deliver the generated synthetic to any of the supported databases or cloud storage providers.
