Vishnu Kumar 21 Reputation points

I am trying to load/copy data from a local mysql database in my mac into cosmosDB using Data factory. Most of the material i found online suggest to created an integration runtime which requires an installation of an app aimed at windows Os. Is there a way where i could load/copy data from my mysql on mac into azure cosmos DB ?

    Hello @Vishnu Kumar ,

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

    Yes, to copy data from on-premise machine to Azure via ADF, you need a self-hosted integration runtime.

    A self-hosted integration runtime can run copy activities between a cloud data store and a data store in a private network.

    It also can dispatch transform activities against compute resources in an on-premises network or an Azure virtual network. The installation of a self-hosted integration runtime needs an on-premises machine or a virtual machine inside a private network.


    Unfortunately, self-hosted integration runtime is not supported for Mac OS.

    Appreciate if you could share the feedback on our ADF feedback channel. Which would be open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows our product teams to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and gives insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

    Note: Currently Self Hosted Integration runtime can only be installed/Supported versions of Windows are:

    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 10
    • Windows 11
    • Windows Server 2012
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
    • Windows Server 2016
    • Windows Server 2019
    • Windows Server 2022

    For more details, refer to Create and configure a self-hosted integration runtime.

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