Support ADF Projects in Visual Studio 2017
Currently Visual Studio 2017 does not support Azure Data Factory projects.
Despite the Azure SDK now being included in VS2017 with all other services the ADF project files aren't.
Can you please include this feature so developers can upgrade from VS2015?
I hate developing in a web browser.
Best practices for source control, integration, tests and deployment are well established in the dev community in general. Data factory is out right incompatible with them.

Does anyone in Azure product team think proactively about data fellows? No ADF project in VS, no SQLDW project in VS... C'mon you sell these services to your customers as pieces of enterprise ready data platform! And in the meantime we have to use dirty workarounds that slow us down and do not allow to work in an agile fashion.
Привет хочу. Тебя сильно
really need this - frustrating when trying to promote "one solution" solutions to fellow devs who are sometimes hesitant with that approach and I have to say "one solution...except for this one..."
Makes me look a right mug and hard to get principals across!

By far the most voted for feedback but still no roadmap!?

Stop wasting MS dev effort on the web browser development for ADF.
It's not a feature. It's a toy and an initial learning aid but it also holds back real work.
Real work requires a standardised approach to CI/CD. ADF portal doing it's own weird approach is not helpful. but doesnt provide the required controls.
The portal's git integration and publish methods do not follow best practice. Portal should be disabled in all real world environments.
Data Factory 2 is now Generally Available....still no tools...
Not having this in VS2017 is a real nuisance, forcing us to use 2015 for the sake of 1 project!
Please extend the ADF project support to VS2017

Please upgrade to support dfproj

I wonder who the Visual Studio product managers are. It's completely ridiculous that VS 2017 does NOT yet have an SDK. How do you expect people to upgrade if they can't get all they need in the next version. Who manages the priority in this team?

support VS2017 please!
Please add the feature to upgrade from VS2015!

ADF Team, I would suggest just skip any development to support Visual Studio 2017 and work on Visual Studio vNext - so by that time at least we can use latest tooling.
Would be great to see this (Data Factory) supported in VS 2017.
Make this happen soon, Microsoft!
https://www.purplefrogsystems.com/paul/2017/09/whats-new-in-azure-data-factory-version-2-adfv2/ - see screenshots on this blog of private preview for ADFv2 showing gui authoring tool. Apparently it works together with git repos. Hoping for this to be released soon.

Asked when VS extension (ADF tools for VS) will be available for ADF v2, see questions section in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/data-factory/introduction.
Reply was somewhat vague, "working on an online visual authoring tool and will make it available late this year".
Potentially this could mean that VS extension support is dropped, and further development should be done with Python/.NET/PowerShell, as listed in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/data-factory/

We need this also.
