General Availability: Active Directory Connector for Arc-enabled SQL MI
Published date: January 18, 2023
Azure Arc-enabled data services support Active Directory (AD) for Identity and Access Management (IAM). The Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instance uses an existing on-premises Active Directory (AD) domain for authentication. To facilitate this, Azure Arc-enabled data services introduce a new Kubernetes-native Custom Resource Definition (CRD) called Active Directory Connector. It provides Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instances running on the same data controller the ability to perform Active Directory authentication.
