Remote Query
Posted by: Donna Kelly

I want to use Azure Data Factory to run a remote query against a big MySQL database sitting inside a VM in another tenant.  Connectivity is good; I can see the other database, and my ADF Connection succeeds.

But how do I get my SELECT statement to execute on the other machine?  I don't want to bring back gigabytes of tables and select from them locally.  I want my SELECT WHERE clause to execute on the MySQL database remotely and just get the very small dataset piped back to the Data Factory.

Any ideas?

Please note this question is not about Azure - it's about correctly forming a query that will execute remotely. If I was in a SQL Server environment, I'd
use something like
'SELECT TOP 10 GroupName, Name FROM AdventureWorks2012.HumanResources.Department') AS a;

However, I don't know how to do that with MySQL.

All help gratefully received!
