Airflow Scheduler

Engine Name: mssql

The SQLMesh MsSql Operator is similar to the MsSqlOperator, and relies on the same MsSqlHook implementation.

To enable support for this operator, the Airflow Microsoft MSSQL provider package should be installed on the target Airflow cluster along with SQLMesh with the mssql extra:

pip install "apache-airflow-providers-microsoft-mssql"
pip install "sqlmesh[mssql]"

The operator requires an Airflow connection to determine the target MSSQL account. Refer to MSSQL connection for more details.

By default, the connection ID is set to mssql_default, but can be overridden using the engine_operator_args parameter to the SQLMeshAirflow instance as in the example below:

sqlmesh_airflow = SQLMeshAirflow(
    default_catalog="<database name>",
        "mssql_conn_id": "<Connection ID>"
