A new, exciting capability for Azure SQL Database has been announced today at //Build: Azure SQL Database has a new built-in feature that allows native integration with external REST endpoints. This means that integration of Azure SQL Database with Azure Functions, Azure Logic Apps, Cognitive Services, Event Hubs, Event Grid, Azure Containers, API Management and in general any REST or even GraphQL endpoint is just one line of code away. The feature is one of the most requested by developers and MVPs and it enormously reduces the friction to integrate Azure services with Azure SQL Database

Who is the Azure SQL Database External REST Endpoints Integration EAP for? 

If you are interested in using Azure SQL Database external REST endpoints integration to test the feature before it becomes generally available to the public, then this early adoption program (“EAP”) is for you. Customers and partners running Azure SQL Database who would like to validate this new ability and verify how they can use it in their solutions are a good fit for this EAP. The Azure SQL Database external REST endpoints integration EAP is also for partners who want to build system integrator (“SI”) offerings and independent software vendor (“ISV”) applications using Azure SQL Database. Upon successful validation, these applications and solutions can be supported in production prior to the general availability release. 

 

Program Benefits 

EAP participants have direct access to the development team through a Program Manager Buddy. Your "PM Buddy" is there as a primary contact within the development team to help connect you to the right people to help your solution adopt this new Azure SQL Database feature. Typically, PM Buddies communicate with the customer via email and, if needed, via regularly scheduled meetings.  

Customers in the EAP will try out new features before the general public gets to see them and provide feedback directly to the development team, providing input that may influence how features will behave when the Azure SQL Database feature in the EAP reaches general availability. 

 

Requirements 

Start by reviewing the Terms and Conditions of the Azure SQL Database external REST endpoints integration EAP that follows below. 

Next, complete the application form (https://aka.ms/azure-sql-extrest-eap-form), providing as much detail as possible to help us understand your usage scenario(s).  A non-disclosure agreement (“NDA”) with Microsoft will be required to participate in the program. If you do not already have an NDA, we will help you get one signed. 

 

Next Steps 

The Azure SQL Database team will evaluate all completed applications and select a limited number of customers based on reported usage scenarios, ability to provide feedback on the new feature, and progress towards production deployments. 

We look forward to hearing your feedback on this exciting new feature for Azure SQL Database!
