Synapse Workspace should have managed virtual network enabled, the default is disabled.

Explanation

Synapse Workspace does not have managed virtual network enabled by default.

When you create your Azure Synapse workspace, you can choose to associate it to a Microsoft Azure Virtual Network. The Virtual Network associated with your workspace is managed by Azure Synapse. This Virtual Network is called a Managed workspace Virtual Network. Managed private endpoints are private endpoints created in a Managed Virtual Network associated with your Azure Synapse workspace. Managed private endpoints establish a private link to Azure resources. You can only use private links in a workspace that has a Managed workspace Virtual Network.

Possible Impact

Your Synapse workspace is not using the private endpoints

Suggested Resolution

Set manage virtual network to enabled

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the azure-synapse-virtual-network-enabled check.

resource "azurerm_synapse_workspace" "bad_example" {
  name                                 = "example"
  resource_group_name                  = azurerm_resource_group.example.name
  location                             = azurerm_resource_group.example.location
  storage_data_lake_gen2_filesystem_id = azurerm_storage_data_lake_gen2_filesystem.example.id
  sql_administrator_login              = "sqladminuser"
  sql_administrator_login_password     = "H@Sh1CoR3!"

  aad_admin {
    login     = "AzureAD Admin"
    object_id = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"
    tenant_id = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"
  }

  tags = {
    Env = "production"
  }
}

Secure Example

The following example will pass the azure-synapse-virtual-network-enabled check.

resource "azurerm_synapse_workspace" "good_example" {
  name                                 = "example"
  resource_group_name                  = azurerm_resource_group.example.name
  location                             = azurerm_resource_group.example.location
  storage_data_lake_gen2_filesystem_id = azurerm_storage_data_lake_gen2_filesystem.example.id
  sql_administrator_login              = "sqladminuser"
  sql_administrator_login_password     = "H@Sh1CoR3!"
  managed_virtual_network_enabled	   = true
  aad_admin {
    login     = "AzureAD Admin"
    object_id = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"
    tenant_id = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"
