Azure Table Storage

Guide to integrate your Azure Table with Sprinkle

Datasource Concepts

Before setting up the datasource, learn about datasource concepts here

Step by Step Guide

STEP-1: Configure Azure Table Storage Connection

To learn about Connection, refer here

  • Log into Sprinkle application

  • Navigate to Datasources -> Connections Tab -> New Connection ->

  • Select Azure Table Storage

  • Provide all the mandatory details

    • Name: Name to identify this connection

    • Connection String : Provide the in the format:


    • Table Type: Select the Table API Type

      • Azure Table

      • Azure Cosmos Table

  • Test Connection

  • Create

STEP-2: Configure Azure Table Storage datasource

To learn about datasource, refer here

  • Navigate to Datasources -> Datasources Tab -> Add ->

  • Select Azure Table Storage

  • Provide the name -> Create

  • Connection Tab:

    • From the drop-down, select the name of connection created in STEP-2

    • Update

STEP-3: Create Dataset

Datasets Tab: To learn about Dataset, refer here. Add Dataset for each table that you want to replicate, providing following details

  • Azure Table (Required): To choose from dropdown.

  • Ingestion Mode: (Required)

    • Complete: Ingest full data from the source table in every ingestion job run. Choose this option if your table size is small (<1 million rows) and you want to ingest it infrequently (few times a day)

    • Incremental: Ingest only the changed or inserted rows in every ingestion job run. Choose this option if your table size is large and you want to ingest in realtime mode.

    To Know more about Ingestion Modes, refer here

  • Date Type: Ingestion runs from this start date/days. If Incremental, then only first run pulls from this date, further runs only pulls changes/new rows.

    • Start Date: Provide in the Format:YYYY-MM-DD

    • No of days

  • Destination Schema (Required) : Data warehouse schema where the table will be ingested into

  • Destination Table name (Required) : It is the table name to be created on the warehouse. If not given, sprinkle will create like ds_<datasourcename>_<tablename>

  • Destination Create Table Clause: Provide additional clauses to warehouse-create table queries such as clustering, partitioning, and more, useful for optimizing DML statements. Learn more on how to use this field.

  • Create

STEP-4: Run and schedule Ingestion

In the Ingestion Jobs tab:

  • Trigger the Job, using Run button

  • To schedule, enable Auto-Run. Change the frequency if needed
