Copper Contributor

Hi everybody,


We are using Azure Data Factory as ETL  and Dedicated SQL pool (formerly SQL DW) as datawarehouse and recently we received the below message :

Azure Synapse runtime for Apache Spark 2.4 will be retired on 29 September 2023—transition to version 3.2 or 3.3


We aren't use a Synapse workspace, my question is : must we update something or not needed for our case ?

we only use this service "Dedicated SQL pool (formerly SQL DW)" related to Azure Synapse.


I saw the below link but it's not the case.
