ADF to delete files from ADLS


  • We are using ADF to delete files from ADLS using Web Activity –

    The Authorization token needs to generated every time we delete ?

    Is there a way to generate a permanent token?

  • I had to create Azure function to delete files in ADL. Web Activity would call Azure function via HTTP trigger.  Code in Azure function to delete ADL files and handle tokens is not difficult.
