I'm doing some PoC work with Python integration in SQL Server 2017.
I have got the basic steps working, & have completed this example successfully: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/advanced-analytics/tutorials/run-python-using-t-sql
For the PoC I'm trying to complete, I need to us some external python modules (for example tensorflow) that don't seem to come with the standard python libraries that are bundled with SQL Server.
In a standard python IDE, I would just do install with pip or git clone. If I do this on the server that is running SQL Server it completes successfully, but I can't seem to use the external modules from TSQL.
Error message is:
ImportError: No module named 'tensorflow'
Does anyone know if it is possible to do this?
I've tried googling, but not much coming back. I guess as this is such a new feature that there isn't a huge amount of knowledge in the community.
