Dev/Test Labs for Data Share PoC

Peppers 6 Reputation points

Hi all, I want to set up a proof of concept for Azure Data Share to share data external to our company. Would Dev/Test Labs be a way to do this? Could I have another subscription, a SQL Server and storage account set up in Dev/Test Labs to mimic an external customer? I'm totally new to Dev/Test and have yet to activate it.

If there is another way to go about this, please let me know.

    Hello @Peppers ,

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

    Note: Azure DevTest Labs is not all required in Azure Data Share.

    What is Azure Data Share?

    Azure Data Share enables organizations to simply and securely share data with multiple customers and partners. You can provision a new data share account, add datasets, and invite your customers and partners to your data share. Data providers are always in control of the data that they've shared. Azure Data Share makes it simple to manage and monitor what data was shared, when and by whom.


    What are the Prerequisites to share the data in Azure?

    • Azure Subscription: If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.
    • Your recipient's Azure e-mail address (using their e-mail alias won't work).
    • If the source Azure data store is in a different Azure subscription than the one you will use to create Data Share resource, register the Microsoft.DataShare resource provider in the subscription where the Azure data store is located.

    For more details, refer to Tutorial: Share data using Azure Data Share and How to add a recipient to your share.

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