The Azure Data Lake connector will crawl content from the Azure Data Lake Store cloud at either root or specified paths.

An Azure Data Lake makes it easy for developers, data scientists, and analysts to store data of any size, shape, and speed, for all types of processing and analytics across platforms. It removes the complexities of storing data while making it faster to get up and running with batch, streaming, and interactive analytics. Azure Data Lake works with existing. It integrates seamlessly with operational stores and data warehouses so you can extend current data applications. 

For more information about the Azure Data Lake Store, see the official Microsoft Overview of Azure Data Lake Store documentation.
