Setting up a connection for Azure Blob Storage Gen 2
I have a two week trial for dataiku and I'm trying to import a dataset from Azure Data Lake Gen 2 Storage. When I click on "Flows" -> "Import Your First Dataset", I get an option for "Azure Blob Storage". However, when I click on this there's no connection in the drop down box for "Azure connection". The documentation was not clear on where & how to create this connection.
 
Is there somewhere this connection is created outside of a project? Or is this functionality limited in the trial version?
Operating system used: Ubuntu 18.04

Before you can import a dataset from an external data source you need to create a DSS connection to the data source. You can find the connections and create a new one from the connection page (Administration > Connections):

Regarding connecting to Azure Blob Storage please refer to our documentation here and let us know if you have any specific questions.
 
Best.

Thanks, that did the trick. It wasn't clear from your documentation where in the UI the connections are setup.
