Tutorial: Add a sample model from the portal
In this tutorial, you add a sample Adventure Works tabular model database to your server. The sample model is a completed version of the Adventure Works Internet Sales (1200) sample data model. A sample model is useful for testing model management, connecting with tools and client applications, and querying model data. This tutorial uses the Azure portal and SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to:
- Add a completed sample tabular data model to a server
- Connect to the model with SSMS
If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.
