I have created certificate in synapse with below code. I want to retrieve password from azure key vault and use the password in the below statement.

CREATE CERTIFICATE ZZZZ_Certificate ENCRYPTION BY PASSWORD = 'pGFD4bb925DGvbd2439587y' WITH SUBJECT = 'ZZZ Information', EXPIRY_DATE = '20221231';

I went through MSFT document and did not find anything. Is it possible to retrieve secret information from Azure key vault and use them in T SQL in synapse?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to retrive password from Azure Key Vault in Azure Synapse T-SQL.
