    Just to give this a little more exposure (as it's tricky to find), the tooling has many names:
    Azure Data Lake Analytics
    Azure Data Lake Store Gen 2
    U-SQL

    Great news – static IP range for Azure Integration Runtime is now available in all ADF regions! You can whitelist specific IP ranges for ADF as part of firewall rules. The IPs are documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/azure-integration-runtime-ip-addresses#azure-integration-runtime-ip-addresses-specific-regions. Static IP ranges for gov cloud and China cloud will be published soon!

    Please refer to this blog post on how you can use various mechanisms including trusted Azure service and static IP to secure data access through ADF:
    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/azure-data-factory/azure-data-factory-now-supports-static-ip-address-ranges/ba-p/1117508

    Service tag support will be made available in next few weeks. Please stay tuned!

    If your network security requirement calls for ADF support for VNet and cannot be met using Trusted Azure service (released in Oct 2019), static IP range (released in Jan 2020), or service tag (upcoming), please vote for VNet feature here: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/270578-data-factory/suggestions/37105363-data-factory-should-be-able-to-use-vnet-without-re

    This would be especially useful if you know a certain activity didn't run correctly, but the ones upstream did. And the previously bad activity's output is used downstream, so they also need re-running.

    This is particularly important when re-running with upstream has cost implications, but also where you don't want to re-run by hand as the depencies are complex.

    Totally agree, there's a lot of boiler plate code needed to get a custom activity off the ground and it doesn't feel right coding to a specific data store so you'd need to warm up an architecture to abstract yourself away from storage to give a feeling of "doing it right".

    Azure functions has a nice abstraction from the storage mechanism that gives you abstraction without needing to warm up a data access layer.

    It seems a little over kill to use Azure batch. Azure functions would be nice but there's a risk of timeout when in resource consumption mode and it would be nice not to have to hunt down c# AES-256 zip libraries, there's a few but not a perfect example.

    It would be very helpful to have AES-256 encrypted zip file support to simplify pipelines, rather than needing azure batch or functions.
