Providing query-only access to Hybrid Data Pipeline

An administrator can provision an account such that user access is limited to queries against a data source. For example, an administrator may want to provision user access such that a user can run an OData application against a backend data store. In this scenario, the administrator creates the data source and supplies the end user with connection information for the data source. The end user can query the data store with the connection information supplied, but he or she does not have direct access to the Hybrid Data Pipeline connectivity service.
When provisioning users for query-only access to Hybrid Data Pipeline data sources, administrators can manage data sources in two distinct ways. First, they can create a data source themselves then share the data source with one or more user accounts. In this case, the data source information, including connection information, is the same for all accounts querying the data source. Second, the administrator can create a data source on behalf of a user account. In this scenario, the data source is owned by the user account, and the data source information is unique to the account.
Administrators must use Hybrid Data Pipeline APIs to share data sources or create data sources on behalf of users. The following topics describe provisioning users for query-only access through Hybrid Data Pipeline APIs. See the Hybrid Data Pipeline API reference for detailed information on all supported API operations.
* Providing query-only access by sharing a data source
* Providing query-only access by creating data sources on behalf of users
