Microsoft Azure Data Explorer¶
Azure Data Explorer connection type enables Azure Data Explorer (ADX) integrations in Airflow.
Authenticating to Azure Data Explorer¶
There are three ways to connect to Azure Data Explorer using Airflow.
Use AAD application certificate (i.e. use “AAD_APP” or “AAD_APP_CERT” as the Authentication Method in the Airflow connection).
Use AAD username and password (i.e. use “AAD_CREDS” as the Authentication Method in the Airflow connection).
Use a AAD device code (i.e. use “AAD_DEVICE” as the Authentication Method in the Airflow connection).
Only one authorization method can be used at a time. If you need to manage multiple credentials or keys then you should configure multiple connections.
