- A running Dedicated SQL pool
The Azure Synapse Analytics integration supports the following authentication method to install the integration and create data sources:
- Username and Password: Users can authenticate with their Azure Synapse Analytics username and password.
Immuta cannot ingest tags from Synapse, but you can connect any of these supported external catalogs to work with your integration.
Impersonation allows users to query data as another Immuta user in Synapse. To enable user impersonation, see the User Impersonation page.
A user can configure multiple integrations of Synapse to a single Immuta instance.
Immuta does not support the following masking types in this integration because of limitations with Dedicated SQL pools (linked below). Any column assigned one of these masking types will be masked to NULL:
- Regex: The built in string replace function does not support full regex. See the Synapse Documentation for details.
The delimiters configured when enabling the integration cannot be changed once they are set. To change the delimiters, the integration has to be disabled and re-enabled.
If the generated view name is more than 128 characters, then the view name is shortened to 128 characters. This could cause collisions between view names if the shortened version is the same for two different data sources.
For proper updates, the Dedicated SQL pools have to be running when changes are made to users or data sources in Immuta.
