Azure Data SQL Samples Repository

This GitHub repository contains code samples that demonstrate how to use Microsoft's Azure Data products including SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, Azure Synapse, and Azure SQL Edge. Each sample includes a README file that explains how to run and use the sample.

Note that certain features like In-Memory OLTP are edition specific for SQL Server and would be possible to implement if the edition which supports that feature is being used to run the sample.

Releases in this repository

Releases allow you to conveniently download sample databases or applications without the need to build them from source code. This SQL Server samples repository has the following notable releases:

Working in GitHub

To work in GitHub, go to and fork the repository. Work in your own fork and when you are ready to submit to make a change or publish your sample for the first time, submit a pull request into the master branch of sql-server-samples. One of the approvers will review your request and accept or reject the pull request.

Each sample should be in its own folder with a file that follows the template. Generated files (e.g., .exe or .bacpac) and user configuration settings (e.g., .user) should not be committed to GitHub.

Cloning only a subset of the repo (with sparse checkout)

You can follow the steps below to clone individual files from the sql-server-samples git repo. Note: The following script clones only the files under the features and demos folders.

git clone -n
cd sql-server-samples
git config core.sparsecheckout true
echo samples/features/*| out-file -append -encoding ascii .git/info/sparse-checkout
echo samples/demos/*| out-file -append -encoding ascii .git/info/sparse-checkout
git checkout

For more information about sparse checkout please visit this stackoverflow thread.
