Lab description

Azure Data Factory is an extract-transform-load (ETL) service in Microsoft Azure for data integration and data transformation. In this lab challenge, you must build an Azure Data Factory Pipeline to accomplish the given objectives. You will be given access to the Azure Portal and to a data factory instance. You will use the Data Factory UI to build the pipeline that meets the requirements. The result of the pipeline run will be assessed to ensure the requirements are met.

Warning: Currently, Data Factory UI is only officially supported by Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome web browsers. It is also recommended to use incognito mode to avoid conflicts with other Microsoft accounts impacting Data Factory UI.
