Installing the Matillion Data Productivity Cloud app in Azure

When creating a new project in the Data Productivity Cloud, the Select project configuration page asks you to choose either Matillion managed or Advanced settings. Choosing Advanced settings enables you to connect your own Azure DevOps repository to your Data Productivity Cloud project. Once you connect your Azure DevOps repository to the Data Productivity Cloud, your data pipelines built using Designer can be committed and pushed to your Azure DevOps repository.

Read Prerequisites for connecting an Azure DevOps repository to the Data Productivity Cloud before installing the app.

Warning

Matillion strongly recommends that you use the new repository that you created and intend to connect to the Data Productivity Cloud solely for the purpose of developing your Designer pipelines.

Note

It may be advisable to use your repository's README file to describe the purpose of the repository and the pipelines developed therein.


How to install the app

  1. During the project creation flow within the Data Productivity Cloud, choose Advanced settings from the Select project configuration page.
  2. When prompted to choose an external Git provider, select Azure DevOps.
  3. You will then be redirected to the Azure login portal.
  4. If the account you log in with belongs to an Azure tenant that has not yet been connected to the Data Productivity Cloud, you will see a prompt to accept and install the application into your Azure tenant.
    • This only needs to be carried out once per Azure tenant, and can be installed by any member of the tenant who has permission to do so.

Once the Matillion Data Productivity Cloud app is installed in your Azure tenant, you can continue creating your project in Designer and connect that project to an Azure DevOps repository.


One-time installation

You only need to install the Matillion Data Productivity Cloud app in your Azure tenant once. After this, whenever you create a new project in the Data Productivity Cloud, you can connect to any repositories that your Azure user account has access to.
