ADLS Gen2is a low-cost object storage solution for the cloud, used for building enterprise data lakes on Azure. Microsoft customers use ADLS2 for storing massive amounts of structured/unstructured data.
You are using ADLS Gen2 when you create aStorage Accountand check “Enable hierarchical namespace”.
In this article, Nicolas describes how to connect SAS Viya to Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (or simply ADLS2):
@ChrisHemedinger started writing ORC to ADLS for use in Databricks using libname because the write performance using JDBC / ODBC was too slow. This is fast and doesn't require a running Databricks session to access data like JDBC / ODBC does. For SAS Viya on Azure Pay-Go, I discovered that I had to set azureauthcacheloc in the context sas option field to a new path before the azure authentication JSON file would save properly.
Can you advise how I to set cas.AZUREAUTHCACHELOC to use the same authentication file as the one in the option azureauthcacheloc path?
