Configuring Authentication with ADLS

In order to access data in your data lake store, you must configure authentication with ADLS via Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Azure uses Azure AD as a multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management service. For more information, refer to What is Active Directory.

You can configure authentication with ADLS by using either a client credential (analogous to a service principal) or a refresh token (associated with a user). We recommend that you use the simpler client credential method.
