How can we improve Microsoft Azure Data Factory?

Unit Testing for ADF Projects

There has to be support for automated testing of Azure Data Factory pipelines - perhaps as part of Visual Studio ADF project suite.

    Real projects out there are always required to go through defined processes like unit testing and automated testing. Unless Microsoft supports a way to come-up with unit testing, it will be difficult for developer community to design reliable applications.

    This is a must, right now most of our ETLs stored procs are unit tested, however our pipelines in ADF are still breaking because of a lack of an automated unit test, we unit test this manually using a separate data factory (test environment), however this is very tedious and time consuming. It'd be nice to have a way of running simple and quick tests and then teardown the environment automatically

    Additionally to unit testing, it would be great to have different deployment slots as in other azure services. Multiple environments would also allow easier testing.
