Creating a data source

Windows Azure requires the following information in a data source:

  • endpoint: The URL for the Windows Azure Enterprise Portal,
  • username: The name of an account with the Enterprise Administrator role. This role is required for access to usage data from all accounts in your enterprise.
  • password: The password for this user

You can define this information in a managed data source or an explicit data source. For general information about these two types, see Setting up a data source.

Managed data source

When creating a managed data source, select the type Azure Public Cloud. When referring to your data source from a job, use the​​ bean. For example:

<bean id="dataSource" class="">       
  <property name="name" value="MyAzureDataSource"/>

Explicit data source

When defining your data source in a job, use the​ bean. For example:

<bean class="​">
  <property name="endpoint" value="" />
  <property name="username" value="mymsaccount" />
  <property name="password" value="mypassword" />
