Support auth using service account principal in Azure Data Factory (ADF) linked service
Currently only personal OAuth user token is supported what doesn't fit real-world production scenario.

Service Principal authentication in ADF is supported for Azure Data Lake Store already (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/data-factory-azure-datalake-connector search for "Service princpal authentication"). Service Principal authentication in ADF for Azure Data Lake Analytics is being worked on and should be available shortly.

Thanks for filing this Alex. It would be better to request that on the ADF uservoice though.
