Microsoft Azure Blob Storage V2 Data Type Reference Overview

Data Integration applications use the String Microsoft Azure Blob Storage native data type and the String Transformation data type in tasks.
Microsoft Azure Blob Storage native data types
Microsoft Azure Blob Storage data types appear in the Fields tab for Source and Target transformations when you choose to edit metadata for the fields.
Transformation data types
Set of data types that appear in the remaining transformations. They are internal data types based on ANSI SQL-92 generic data types, which Data Integration uses to move data across platforms. Transformation data types appear in all remaining transformations in mappings, synchronization tasks, or mapping tasks.
When the Data Integration application reads source data, it converts the native data types to the comparable transformation data types before transforming the data. When the Data Integration application writes to a target, it converts the transformation data types to the comparable native data types.
