Can I share Self-Hosted Integration runtime configured in a Synapse Analytics Workspace with different Synapse Workspaces in different Subscriptions residing in same Active Directory?

Hi Support Team,

Currently, I have 3 different subscriptions and a total of 4 Azure Synapse Analytics Workspaces spanning across the 3 subscriptions. All the subscriptions are part of the same Azure AD.

I have provisioned a beefed-up Virtual Machine in one of my subscriptions and configured one Synapse Analytics to use that VM as a Self-Hosted IR.

I wish to use the same VM as a Self-Hosted IR in my other Synapse Workspaces as well. In Data Factory V2 I was easily able to do this directly from the UI but I don't see that kind of option for Synapse.

Also, there is not much documentation or resources available on this use-case.

Can you please guide me through the process as how to achieve this?

    Hi @Ashish Purohit ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum and thanks for your query.

    Unfortunately it doesn’t support sharing SHIR among different Synapse workspaces. But it’s in product team backlog. I do not have the ETA at the moment but I would recommend you to please subscribe Azure Updates page for new feature announcements and updates about Azure Products.

    This has been called out in this document: Data integration in Azure Synapse Analytics versus Azure Data Factory


    Hope this info helps. Do let us know if you have further query.
