Create endpoints

Last Updated: Jul 22, 2019

Before you connect to DLA from an application, create an endpoint to generate an IP address for the connection. DLA supports two types of endpoints: classic network and VPC network.

Note: When you log on to DMS from DLA through a classic network for the first time, add the IP address that is displayed in DMS to the whitelist of the classic network. Otherwise, the logon fails.

This topic describes how to create an endpoint, modify endpoint settings, and view endpoint information.

Create a classic network

To connect to DLA through a public network, create a classic network in DLA to generate a public IP address for the connection. By default, no classic networks or public IP addresses are available in DLA. You only need to add the IP addresses or CIDR blocks that are used for DLA access to the whitelist. Then, a public IP address is generated for you to connect to DLA.

Note:

  • Before connecting to DLA through a classic network, you must add the IP addresses or CIDR blocks that are used for DLA access to the whitelist.

  • You can modify the IP addresses or CIDR blocks in the whitelist. The modification does not change the endpoint information (connection IP address).

  • When a public IP address is no longer needed for DLA access, you can manually disable the public IP address and delete the classic network. For more information, see Delete an endpoint.

  1. Log on to the Data Lake Analytics console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Endpoint, and then click Set white list.

  3. Add the IP addresses or CIDR blocks that are used for DLA access to the whitelist, and then click OK.

    • 0.0.0.0/0 means that DLA is accessible from any device. Exercise caution when deciding to add this CIDR block to the whitelist.

    • Add the IP address that is displayed in DMS to the whitelist of the classic network. Otherwise, you cannot connect to DLA through the classic network.

    • When you enter a CIDR block, for example, 10.10.10.0/24, any IP addresses in the format of 10.10.10.X have access to DLA.

    • When you enter multiple IP addresses or CIDR blocks, separate them with commas (no space before or after each comma), for example, 192.168.0.1,172.16.213.9.

Create a VPC network

A virtual private cloud (VPC) is a private network that is logically isolated from other networks. You can define the network topology and IP addresses for a VPC, and connect to the VPC over a leased line. A VPC provides higher security and flexibility than a classic network.

Note:

  • In DLA, a VPC network is an endpoint (single tunnel) that provides a service access channel from the specified VPC to DLA.

  • To connect to DLA from multiple VPCs, create a VPC endpoint for each VPC. Each VPC endpoint has unique endpoint information.

  1. Log on to the Data Lake Analytics console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Endpoint, and then click Create endpoint.

  3. On the Create endpoint page, **, set VPC and Vswitch, and then click OK**.

Modify a classic network

Classic network modification means to modify the IP address whitelist of the classic network. For more information, see Create a classic network.

View endpoint information

  1. Log on to the Data Lake Analytics console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Endpoint to view endpoint information.
