View rows of a Data Lake Store Table


  • Hi,

    what is the best way (tool) to show rows (data) of a ADLS table. The server explorer doesn't support it.

  • Hi Jörg,

    today, we do not have a way to preview results of the table. the best way to achieve this today is to write scripts that either profiles the data or outputs result of a query into file (you can extract few or some meaningful number of records, or run some aggregates/profile type of queries and extract results, etc)...

    we understand above is not ideal and are looking into ways to enable this scenario. We are looking into ways to enable preview results in VS. Ideally, we also have interactive capabilities that allows you to submit arbitrary query in Visual Studio that outputs results back... both are considered currently...

    If you have other thoughts and ideas, feel free to respond...
