unzip a password protected file using synapse notebook

New Contributor

I have a zipped file. It has 3 csv files.  It is password protected. When I tried extracting it manually it will extract only with 7zip. 

I moved my zipped file to ADLS automatically and want to extract it with the password. 

How to unzip the file and read all the csv's

If you use python, the zipfile library can do it, something like this:

with zipfile.ZipFile(zip_file_path, 'r') as zip_ref:
            zip_ref.extractall(path=extract_to, pwd=bytes(password,'utf-8'))

 In scala there is f.e. zip4j
