Azure Data Factory: Save a pipeline as a Template

Saving a Pipeline

Another great improvement in Azure Data Factory. Saving you template!

How can you save your template?

First of all you need to connect your Azure Data Factory to  a GIT integration. Both Azure DevOps GIT and GitHub are supported. Please follow this link if you don’t have a Git Integration.

Select the template you want to save:

Name your template and save it to a Git Location of your choice:

The template you have saved can be found in Factory Resources.

With this new option it will  be easier to share Pipeline Activities with other Azure Data Factory instances.

And most important of saving your template it will save a lot of development time in your new instance.

 

Happy Saving

      Hi Mike,

      Yes there’s. When you save the template you have the option to Export the template. The template will be saved on your local hard drive. The next time you want to re-use this template you choose the option Pipeline form Template and in the upper corner you will see the option “Use Local Template”. Select the exported Template and you’re off to go.
      Hope that the answer will save you some time.
