Mapping Data Flow Sink to SQL on IaaS VM

Priyaranjan Midde 1 Reputation point

Does Mapping Data Flow allow us to sink the data into a SQL DB hosted on a IaaS VM? Currently, there is no option other than Azure Blob Storage or Azure SQL. Any inputs here are highly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi @Priyaranjan Midde ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for using this forum.

    Currently ADF mapping data flow only supports the following data source/sink. (Ref: Supported source types)


    Azure Data Factory has access to over 90 native connectors. In order to load transformed data from data flow to your SQL DB in Azure VM, you may have to first load the data to one of the data flow supported sink stores and then use a subsequent Copy Activity to load that data from dataflow supported staging area to your final sink/destination - ie., SQL DB in Azure VM.

    Please note that Mapping data flow doesn't support Self Hosted Integration Runtime.
