Creating your Azure Synapse Analytics Workspace

In the article below I would like to take you through,  how you can configure an Azure Synapse Workspace and not the already existing Azure Synapse Analytics SQL Pool(formerly Azure SQL DW):

In de Azure Portal search for Azure Synapse Analytics. Make sure you select Workspaces Preview.

Select Azure Synpase Analytics Workspace

 

Create Azure Synpase Analytics Workspace

Click on Create to start the configuration of your Workspace.

Configure Azure Synpase Analytics Workspace

Make sure you select the correct:

Subscription

Resource Group

The seconds part of this configuration is to setup your Workspace:

Workspace Name I’m using <customername><environment><wsas><department>  wsas=WorkSpace Azure Synapse prevwsdvlmwsasoxgn01
Region The desired Region <West Europe>
Data Lake Storage Gen 2 Select an existing Data Lake Storage Gen 2
Data Lake Storage Gen 2 File System I’m creating a new container here temp. This directory is used to store temporary files and workspace settings and I don’t want to mix this temporary data in 1 of my other containers.

Assign Workspace Managed Identity

 

 

 

 

The above option will assign the managed identity of the workspace the Storaqe Blob Data Contributor role with full access on the selected Data Lake Storage Gen2 file system. Leave the option to on unless you want to grant access manualy.

Assign sql admin user

You can set the sqladmin user. But it can set be in a later stage as well.

Managed Virtual Network

Leave this option empty, I will explain in a later article how this will work.

ip-address Connection

Normally you do not want to allow all IP addresses, for our initially setup we leave is as is. We can also adjust these settings in a later stage.
