I have a U-SQL managed table that contains schematized structured data.
CREATE TABLE [AdlaDb].[dbo].[User]
And an Azure SQL Database table.
CREATE TABLE [SqlDb].[dbo].[User]
UserGuid uniqueidentifier NOT NULL,
Postcode varchar(15) NULL,
Age int NULL,
DateOfBirth Date NULL,
I would like to transfer data from U-SQL managed table to the Azure SQLDB table without losing the data types.
I'm using azure data factory, seems like I cannot
- directly query the U-SQL managed table as an input dataset for data factory
- do a federated write query to Azure SQLDB
Hence I'm having an intermediate step where I copy from U-SQL managed table to Azure Blob and then move to Azure SQLDB table. Doing this, I'm losing the data type and having to have type conversion/transformations later again before inserting.
Is there any better way to transfer data from U-SQL managed table to Azure SQL Database table without losing data type? Or am I missing something?
