Connecting to SQL Server Cloud- AZURE

Experts,

Is it possible to make a connection to SQL Cloud database-Azure, I have tired making a relational connection from IDT using Microsoft SQL server connection type,but it was not fruitful.

Below is the format of the server information, I was able to connect to it from SQL server management studio.

Server: XXXXXXXX.database.windows.net

Admin: XXXXXXXX

Pass: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Thanks

Ram

    • Nope, it did not work, here is the response I got from SAP saying they dont support AZURE

      I would like to inform you BO support cloud services to limited vendors.We do not support #Cloud# data sources in XI3.1 nor in UDT.  Only

      BI4.0 or BI4.1 IDT.

      The only data sources we support are Apache/Hive, OData,

      XML/WebServices and Amazon.

      We do not support any further #Cloud# vendors.

      Please check the KBA Note:  1919334 - Connecting To A Cloud Data Source


      Thanks
