Azure Synapse Link fails to create model.json

Posted on by 7

Hi, I am trying to create a new Azure Synapse Link but the model.json file is empty and the OptionSetMetadata folder is not created.

I was able to create a link on 16th January but due to an unrelated issue, we had to unlink and start from scratch. I am now trying to recreate the link but am having issues with an empty model.json file and no OptionSetMetadata folder.

I have set the advanced options to incremental, chosen a suitable timeframe and selected all of my tables in the Power Apps menu, just as I did on Monday. The link is created correctly and a container is generated on our storage account. All of the selected tables are downloaded to the container correctly.

However, the model.json file is never populated and the OptionSetMetadata folder and associated CSVs are missing, meaning we are unable to process the data with Azure Data Factory.

We havent changed anything about our setup, other than unlinking the original config. Is there an issue with deploying new links?
