Allowing Azure Service to Connect to your Azure SQL server.

In this video David will look at the impact of allowing you Azure SQL databases to work with other Azure services and the knock of effect of setting the option “Allow Access to Other Azure Services”.

In short, setting this option,  doesn’t limit connections from just your Azure subscription. It allows Any Azure Service  from any Azure subscription  to connect to your SQL Database. In the video David demonstrates this…

The following is David’ abstract from David’s  the post on YouTube…

“If you want your Azure SQL server to interact with your Azure services you need to update your firewall rule to “Allow Access to Other Azure Services” . This seems pretty straight forward and sensible BUT there is a major weakness regarding this setting that you must be aware of. Watch my video find out more…”

If you have watched the video do you think its a security flaw? David discusses this too.

Any comments on thoughts please leave them in the comments here or leave them on David’s YouTube Channel

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
