I ran into an issue today while trying to publish a storage event trigger in Azure Synapse Analytics. After publishing, I got error messages that said “failed to subscribe” and “failed to activate”. The storage event trigger had been published, but it wouldn’t start. Help! 😱
I spent a couple of hours today figuring out how to connect to HubSpot from Azure Synapse Analytics. Since it wasn’t straightforward for me, I decided to blog about how I did it. Hopefully, this post can help one or two others (or future me!) save some time 😊
The HubSpot Linked Service
The Azure Synapse Analytics (or Azure Data Factory) linked service connects to HubSpot using a Client ID, Client Secret, Access Token, and Refresh Token:
How do we get these values from HubSpot?
The overall process is to:
Create a private app in HubSpot to get the Client ID and Client Secret
Authorize the private app and get authorization code
Exchange authorization code for Access Token and Refresh Token
Create linked service in Azure Synapse Analytics or Azure Data Factory
Are you new to Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics? Maybe you’re an expert SSIS developer wondering how to take that first step into Azure? Do you feel a little overwhelmed by all the possible ways you can move and transform data these days? Join me at the ExCeL London on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022! I will be delivering a training day at SQLBits 2022 called Beginner’s Guide to Data Integration using Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics 🥳
My goal is to help kickstart your journey as an Azure Data Engineer, and for all of us to have a great and safe day of learning and networking. SQLBits are taking covid safety seriously by requiring proof of vaccination / tests, wearing masks, and ensuring proper spacing between seats. I will be there in-person and hope you will be able to join us too!
Today is a very special day. It’s Monday, it’s a new week, and it’s a new month - all sorts of new beginnings. The most important new beginning, however, is that today is my first day as a Senior Consultant in the Data Management and Analytics team in Skill! Yay 🥳
Skill is a Norwegian IT consulting company with over 100 consultants working from two locations. They have teams focused on everything from cloud infrastructure to cloud productivity, from security to business applications, and from collaboration to analytics.
What do they all have in common? They all deliver solutions built on Microsoft technologies! Just like me 🤓
(And just like me, there are many people in Skill who love giving back and helping their communities! I’m honored that I can now call fellow Microsoft MVPs Jan Vidar Elven, Magnus Goksöyr, and Ulrikke Akerbæk my coworkers 🤩)
I’ve joined the Data Management and Analytics team, and will continue to focus on Azure Data and the Microsoft Data Platform. I get to dive deeper into fun things like Azure Synapse Analytics and Azure Data Factory, and I’m hoping to learn even more about Power BI and the rest of the Power Platform. Maybe I’ll even pick up a thing or two about infrastructure, networking, and security?
I’m very much looking forward to this new chapter. Great people, a supportive workplace, and exciting technologies…? I’M SO EXCITED! 😊
