Linked Services



This topic and its sub-topics provides the JSON format that is supported by the older versions of Azure PowerShell. If you are using the July 2015 Release version of Azure PowerShell, see Linked Services for the latest JSON format. You can convert the JSON from old format to new format by using the tool: JSON Upgrade Tool

The JSON format for a linked service (store or compute) is as follows:

    "name": "Name of the linked service",
        "type":"<Linked Service Type>",
        "<property>": "<value>",
        "<property>": "<value>"

The type property specifies the type of the linked service. The other properties in the properties section are different for each linked service. See the following topics for details about each linked service supported by the Azure Data Factory service.
