Connect Azure SQL Database with Azure AD AAD interactive, Multi-Factor Authentication MFA

Connect to Azure SQL Database with Azure AD also with Multi-Factor Authentication is a crucial feature nowadays. The tool should be configurable by interface tools so we can change the database within the same Azure Database server.


There is a workaround to use ODBC for this but it does not support caching credentials and that's why problematic to use. The credential prompt is appearing every time we run the workflow. With ODBC it's also required to have a separate DSN for every database in the same server.


To make it easy for users there should be a native connector for this feature. The user experience should be easy as it's in an azure data lake connector.

Hello, everyone, this idea has been implemented and released as part of 23.2 release. The MFA is now completely handled by Alteryx Designer and all credentials are "cached", stored, in DCM.
