  1. [In preview] Database project from Visual Studio to support Azure SQL Data Warehouse

    Database project from Visual Studio is useful to manage DDLs, schema compare between the project and database, etc. Please create a project template dedicated for DW or support DW development from Database Project.

    Download the Visual Studio 2019 preview here: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/sql-data-warehouse/sql-data-warehouse-install-visual-studio

  2. Support for Entity Framework

    Support for Entity Framework in Azure SQL Data Warehouse would allow for greater usability in general, but it would also allow for better support of other frameworks/protocols. Specifically, we have a need to serve our data through an OData feed, and Entity Framework's deferred execution would allow us to handle OData's Query Options in a much simpler way.

  4. 'Replication' solution from sql server to sql dataware house?

    Why not implement a Sql server 'Replication' solution from sql server (on premise / Azure) to sql dataware house (on Azure)?
    It would be useful if we have a processing DB in sql server and a accumulating datawarehouse in sql datawarehouse, with not too many structural changes.

    Thank you for voting on this feature. Please describe your scenario in the thread below. We currently have many migration solutions from SQL Server to SQL Data Warehouse such as Azure Data Factory and Redgate through the Quick Load Azure portal experience (link below). If this is a continuous replication process, we’d love to understand your hybrid scenario so please comment below.

  5. Raise limit for nested case expressions from 10

    Various tools generate dynamic SQL and fail due to the limit "
    Case expressions may only be nested to level 10"

  6. Geo Distributed Data Warehouse

    Please enable geographically distributed Data Warehouse.
    Different part of the data should be located in different clouds because of legal issues.

    EXAMPLE: we have sales data from US in one cloud, and from Europe in another. With one query, we would be able to consume total sales from Europe and US.

    We currently support geo-backups to a secondary region. This item is under review for active geo-replication of a SQL Data Warehouse with cross database querying. Please vote for this feature here and comment with your scenario below. Thank you for your patience.

  7. Azure Active Directory (AAD) Connectivity to SQL Warehouse thru Excel

    We want to be flexible and if some teams needs to access sqlwarehouse thru Azure Active Directory instead of local DB Users it will be great and easy to provide access to data

  8. Access to ADLA catalogs using Polybase

    It will be nice if we can access ADLA catalogs using Polybase , we can theoretically eliminate the process of ELT . Please share your thoughts .

  9. CETAS Export - Indicate completion usign a dummy status file

    When CETAS exports data into blob, there is no way for an external process to know if the entire file copy is complete or not. It would be good if SQL DW can create a dummy zero byte file named "status.complete" into the destination folder after all the data files are created. This will allow external process like ADF to watch for this file and trigger any downstream processing.

  10. Integrate USQL into SQL Data Warehouse

    Seems like ADLA is going away in favor of Data Bricks. IMHO USQL was the magic that helped DBAs enter the "hadoop" universe. Think of your audience. Hopefully USQL will still be around and integrated in the SQL product family

  11. I have source as a flat file having data in multiple lines in a string column, when I insert the same data into Azure SQL Datawarehouse data

    I have source as a flat file having data in multiple lines in a string column, when I insert the same data into Azure SQL Datawarehouse database, its removing the new line characters and data is appearing in a single line.

    I checked the data by copying into Notepad++ , its appearing in a single line.

    Is there any option in Azure SQL Datawarehouse database to fix this issue.

    Example: CREATE TABLE test ( ID VARCHAR(20) , TASK NVARCHAR(100) ) WITH ( CLUSTERED INDEX ( ID ) )

    Insert into table with multiple lines in TASK field

    insert into test…
