Run containers through Data Factory custom activity
It is currently not possible to pull down docker images and run those as tasks through Data Factory, even though this is already possible through Batch itself.
Nextflow (https://www.nextflow.io/docs/edge/azure.html#private-container-registry) is the other option instead of using ADF and it also had the container settings. But this would be a great add on hopefully i wont have to migrate all my pipleine to nextflow.

The same context as James: running custom activities as azure batch containerized tasks.

Same here. It would be very valuable if this was possible.

More specifically we cannot run custom activities as azure batch containerised tasks which on my current project would be a significant capability.
