Query federation for SQL Server in Databricks SQL

Preview

This feature is Experimental. Experimental features are provided as-is and are not supported by Databricks through customer technical support channels.

Databricks SQL supports read-only query federation to SQL Server on serverless and pro SQL warehouses.

Connecting to SQL Server with Databricks SQL

You configure connections to SQL Server at the table level. You can use secrets to store and access text credentials without displaying them in plaintext. See the following example:

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS sqlserver_table;
CREATE TABLE sqlserver_table
USING sqlserver
OPTIONS (
  dbtable '<table-name>',
  host '<database-host-url>',
  port '1433',
  database '<database-name>',
  user secret('sqlserver_creds', 'my_username'),
  password secret('sqlserver_creds', 'my_password')
);
