Add an activity to delete blob folder
We have added a first-class Delete Activity which accomplishes this requirement: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/delete-activity
Need activity to delete Blob files
Can the Web activity be used for this to post to the REST api for blobs, ADL, etc?
you can use logic app for that

At the minimum, add option on copy activity to remove (delete) files based on source on copy completion.
How is possible to use Azure Data Lake Storage (orientated tool to work with files), there is no activities to delete files......I can't understand why I should learn C# to do it......
Probably next step is use Assembly language to add extra complexity to work in the Azure ecosystem
It is really crazy that I cannot delete files from blob after ingesting the data.
It seems crazy that there is no means to delete a file on a blob store after ingesting it. This should be as simple as a setting on the copy function (to delete after copy i.e. make it a move). Or, second best, just create a delete function.

Add an activity or a property which will delete or move the blob to another location after processing.
