I am using the Feature Store taxi example notebook for creating a feature store in DBR 8.3 ML. I am able to generate the feature tables and view details in the Feature Store menu. However I am not sure what is the default location where these are getting generated. I would like to view these delta tables in the Azure Storage Explorer. Can anyone please guide me?

    Hello @pdub ,

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

    Unfortunately, you cannot access the feature store tables in Azure Storage Explorer.

    You can use the below methods to access the feature store tables:

    Note: Feature tables are stored as Delta tables.

    Method1: The Databricks Feature Store UI shows the name of the table and database in the online store, along with other metadata.

    Method2: You can view this tables from the Data section => Database Tables.

    Method3: You can view this tables from DBFS file browser.

    DBFS => Users => Hive => warehouse => select database => select table
