Toad allows you to connect to a Windows Azure Table storage service, a NoSQL data source, to view and query tables.
After creating a connection, see About Business Intelligence and NoSQL Data Sources for more information about this data source.
Note: This feature is available in the Toad Data Point Professional Edition only.
To create an Azure Table service connection
Enter the connection information in the Create New Connection dialog. Review the following for additional information:
|Username||Enter your Windows Azure Table service account name.|
|URL||Toad automatically enters the URL for the above account name.|
Enter your account access key.
Note: You can retrieve your access key after signing in to your account through the Windows Azure Portal. See http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/manage/services/storage/how-to-manage-a-storage-account/#regeneratestoragekeys for more information.
|Category||(Optional) Select an existing category or create a new one. |
Note: In NoSQL and Business Intelligence connections, Toad automatically saves the password in the connections.xml file as obfuscated text, as well as in Toad. To add additional password security, use Toad's Master Password feature.
