Tooling issue: Azure account versus Azure user

    Question

  • In Visual Studio 2015, there's an apparent disconnect between the "Azure account" used to connect to my subscription, and the "Azure user" used to submit a USQL job. I know how to switch between subscriptions. But, how do I specify my Azure user? Somehow the "user" is different than my subscription account and it prevents me from submitting a job against my currently selected subscription. This obviously happened as a result of switching between subscriptions, but I don't know how to resolve it.

  • Hi Jason, they should be the same (what you have logged in and what you are using to submit jobs). However I find you are using Cloud Explorer, which is currently not supported by ADL. Can you go to View > Server Explorer and see which user you are using there? The user you used in Server Explorer and the one you are using to submit jobs should be the same. (currently the users you are using in Cloud Explorer and the Server explorer does not stay sync, meaning you can use two different users in those two tools).

    Please let me know if you have more questions.

  • Interestingly, server explorer tells me that I have one or more subscriptions not supported by Server Explorer and to use Cloud Explorer to select the subscription. Once I do that, per your direction, I need to use server explorer again because cloud explorer doesn't support Data Lake. Sigh. I'm up and running (thank you) but good grief...

  • Sorry for the confusion there. Yes, the server explorer is something pretty old and for those subscriptions that you are not the admin role (for example if you are the contributor or reader), server explorer will give you a prompt that the subscriptions might not be fully supported. But for Azure Data Lake per se, it is fully supported in Server Explorer and we are working on making it work in Cloud Explorer so there won't be those confusions:(
