Activity that copies and then deletes.
Thanks for the feedback. We are looking at this.
Delete has been impemented in pipeline. Move is available in the source transformation in Data Flows. You will find a checkbox there for "Move" upon completion.
Dear Data Factory Product Group ::
Please enable use of Copy and Delete activity an activity called "Move".
Please add an option to "Delete source file(s) when finished?"
Please only delete files when every file has been copied and verified.
Please try to delete all files and :
- enable the list of successfully copied files to be retrieved/logged
- return a list of all the files that encountered an error.
- write the same list to the error output for dispositioning.
Atleast it is possible to delete a file using the new delete activity
OK. Solution is: AWS
still no such function in data factory?? cant believe, very disappointed.
2 and a half years later - still under review and no update? I cannot believe that such an essential function is missing. This is a show stopper for us.
I tried to rename the pipeline with adf rest api (update pipeline) but no luck.
Can you please suggest any rest api to rename the pipeline or any other way except ADF UI from azure portal ?
Please help me on this.

Has microsoft stopped development of the Azure Data Factory service? There seems to be hardly any action going on in this area, considering that this item is already "under review" for two and a half years.
As expressed by many below, an essential piece of functionality.

It really important to have this feature. We are spending lot of development time, creating function apps(executed from pipeline) to deal with these unsupported features.
ADF do require delete option to remove the file that are copied to destination.

this is blocking our adoption of azure data factory. We are happy to do a custom activity but have no working examples around how to delete a file using a file system linked service tied to on prem data source. I am coompletely bamboozled as to how a triggered copy activity could be of use to anyone without the ability to delete or archive the files as part of the operation, what am i missing!?
Please add at least a delete activity or a move operation

Azure Data Factory definitely needs at least a Delete Activity.

2 years under revision, really? Some one could give an update?
is there an ETA on this ?? It's been stagnant for way too long...
This definitely needs to be there...it just makes sense and fits the need
We strongly hope that Move (Copy & Deleat) will be implemented
A must have feature - please add the Move and Delete feature to ADF
Definitely need Move and Delete features added in ADF. The entire point of using such tools is for its simplicity while focusing on more important logic, If such basic features are missed out, then it is so disappointing especially when you take so much efforts in learning them.
