Configuring Classifiers for Workload Management

Reiss McSporran continues a series on workload management in Azure Synapse Analytics:

So in part 1 we found out what Workload Management was and why we wanted to use it. (If you haven’t read that part, please click here and read that post before you carry on, as we’re jumping in at the deep end!) In this part we’ll be learning how to configure it.

Continuing from the end of the previous post, you have two main options to configure this. First is to assign a user or role to one of the existing system defined workload groups, second is to create a custom workload group and assign a user or role to this instead.

Read on to learn how to create classifiers, what the rules look like for them, and their importance.
