I am getting Permission denied message intermittently for Delete Activity of Azure Data Factory

Baig, Azim (TSS) 0 Reputation points

I have Delete Activity followed by copy activity. After successful completion of Copy activity I need to delete file from source location. This Delete activity is failing after some time giving Permission Denied message. e.g. Failed to execute delete activity with data source 'Sftp' and error 'Permission Denied! '. For details, please reference log file here:

In the same pipeline I have another delete activity, which is running fine.

As per user issue is occurring when file is over 50MB.

Please assist me to resolve this issue. In one of the link I saw this is known problem and Microsoft is working on it. But that post is almost 1.5 yr old.
