Azure Data Lake Updates

Saveen Reddy points out a few updates to Azure Data Lake Store & the Azure Data Lake Analytics portal:

Use Custom Delimeters when Previewing Files

Previously, we had supported comma, colon, space, tab, ampersand, and bar delimiters. With the many different kinds of files used in Azure Data Lake Store and Azure Storage, we’ve added a “Custom” delimiter options for you to define your own delimiter.

To change the delimiter on the Azure Portal:

  1. Open the file you want to preview using Data Explorer.

  2. Click on Format

  3. Under Delimiter, click the dropdown and change it to Custom

  4. A new Custom Delimiter field will appear, type in your delimiter here

  5. Click OK
