General availability: Row-level security (RLS) for Azure SQL Data Warehouse

Posted on 07 November 2018

Row-level security (RLS) for Azure SQL Data Warehouse is now generally available. RLS is a new capability that can help you manage security for sensitive data.

Securing your data assets in the cloud is critical to building trust with your customers and partners. RLS can help you implement security policies to control access to rows in your tables. RLS enables fine-grained, row-level access control without requiring a redesign of your data warehouse. Your overall security model is simplified: the access restriction logic is located in the database tier itself.

RLS supports SQL authentication and Azure Active Directory authentication.
