sharepoint and sql azure database

  • Hi all,


    Does some know if it is possible to make a database connection with Office365, Sharepoint (Designer) and SQL Azure database ?


    Thanks in advanced 


  • You cannot do this via SharePoint Designer today. What you can do is to create a Silverlight or javaScript client application that calls out to SQL Azure.

    In the near future, we are designing a way to make these connections using the base SharePoint technology called BCS (Business Connectivity Services) wherethen you could develop a service to service to SQL Azure.

  • You can connect your Office 365 based lists with Azure using 3rd party solutions as the Cloud Connector.
