@Veli-Jussi I agree that the existing ADF CICD process is isolated and doesn't work properly. However I'd rather see effort on improving the ADF web UI, Git platform integration and CICD rather than building a .VSIX for Visual Studio. I don't see any different between an army of engineers building pipelines (or SSIS packages) in Visual Studio vs an army of engineers building it in the Web UI. I agree there is a gap in data tooling between ADF web development and "everything else" (SSIS, Database Projects etc.) in Visual Studio but to my mind we should be migrating out of Visual Studio and into cloud based development tools. In fact that appears to be the roadmap. I disagree with your last point. Visual Studio does not afford us any advantage in managing complex ETL over a web UI. Regardless of the tool, the same source code is generated.
