  • I need to get data from REST API calls and I think it can be done either using Azure Data factory or Azure Data bricks or Azure functions. I see there are some limitations in using ADF? which of these will be more preferred solution. Any suggestions should help

  • Hi Arunachalam,

    Do you want to copy data from a REST API to another destination ? In that case, you might want to use Azure Data Factory.

    For more details, please refer the following doc : 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/connector-rest

    It supports the following as of today :

    • Retrieving data from a REST endpoint by using the GET or POST methods.
    • Retrieving data by using one of the following authentications: AnonymousBasicAAD service principal, and managed identities for Azure resources.
    • Pagination in the REST APIs.
    • Copying the REST JSON response as-is or parse it by using schema mapping. Only response payload in JSON is supported.

    Hope this helps.
