Copy data from Magento using Azure Data Factory or Synapse Analytics(Preview)

APPLIES TO: Azure Data Factory Azure Synapse Analytics

This article outlines how to use the Copy Activity in an Azure Data Factory or Synapse Analytics pipeline to copy data from Magento. It builds on the copy activity overview article that presents a general overview of copy activity.

Important

This connector is currently in preview. You can try it out and give us feedback. If you want to take a dependency on preview connectors in your solution, please contact Azure support.

Supported capabilities

This Magento connector is supported for the following capabilities:

Supported capabilities IR
Copy activity (source/-) ① ②
Lookup activity ① ②

① Azure integration runtime ② Self-hosted integration runtime

For a list of data stores that are supported as sources/sinks, see the Supported data stores table.

The service provides a built-in driver to enable connectivity, therefore you don't need to manually install any driver using this connector.

Getting started

To perform the Copy activity with a pipeline, you can use one of the following tools or SDKs:
