Published Aug 09 2023 12:33 PM 3,294 Views

A recent change in Microsoft Purview extends and makes it easier to create data policies for Azure Arc-enabled SQL Servers. With this change:

  • Policies on Linux Arc-SQL are now supported. Prior to this, only policies on Windows Arc-SQL were supported.
  • Microsoft Purview seamlessly adapts to updates made to the app registration used to enable Azure AD authentication for Arc-SQL.
  • It is now simpler to register an Arc-SQL data source in Microsoft Purview and then enable policies, given that capturing the Application Id of the Arc-SQL app registration is not needed anymore.
  • Policies on whole resource groups and subscriptions are now enforced on Arc-SQL data sources without the need to individually and explicitly register them in Microsoft Purview.


This is the simplified registration experience for Azure Arc-enabled SQL Server in Microsoft Purview
