Iam using rest api to register different datasources to Purview inorder do scan,while going through Microsoft Learn for each sources (azure storege,synapse,powerbi )we need to pass different parameters in request body.

Below is the url which I used to find request url,supported datasources,params all

But I could only see an example for registering Azure storage in example section(screen shot attached).Similarly I need to know the what will be the request body for registering synapse.

    Hello @Jose Antony ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    For Synapse the kind field in Request body should be one of the following depends on what you are trying to create.


    Sample Request body for creating SynapseWorkspaceDataSource:

      "kind": "AzureSynapseWorkspace",  
      "properties": {  
        "endpoint": "",  
        "collection": {  
          "referenceName": "CollectionName",  
          "type": "CollectionReference"  

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
