Syntax

New-AzureSqlJobConnection
   -Credential <PSCredential>
   [-CurrentAzureSubscription]
   [-ResourceGroupName <String>]

   -DatabaseName <String>
   -ServerName <String>

   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-AzureSqlJobConnection cmdlet creates a connection to an Elastic Database jobs database.

Different elastic database jobs use the object that this cmdlet creates within the AzureSqlDatabaseJobConnection optional parameter. Alternatively, you can use the Use-AzureSqlJobConnection cmdlet to set the job connection within the Azure PowerShell session context and avoid having to pass the connection as a parameter to subsequent elastic database job cmdlet invocations.

Examples

Example 1: Get a connection to the Elastic Database Jobs database

PS C:\>New-AzureSqlJobConnection -CurrentAzureSubscription
ServerName                    DatabaseName                  UserName                                           Password

Example 2: Get a connection to an Elastic Database Jobs database that exists on a server

PS C:\>New-AzureSqlJobConnection -ServerName "MyServer" -DatabaseName "MyDatabase"
ServerName                    DatabaseName                  UserName                                           Password
