Does Azure Data Factory have a Move Activity i.e. not copy a csv file but move the file to another location?

    Hello ,
    Thanks for the question and also for using this forum.

    At this time there is no Move activity , but then we can work this out by using a delete activity and a copy activty .

    We suggest you to add this as an feature ask to ADF PG here

    All of the feedback you share in the forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

    Thanks & stay safe

    Thanks Himanshu,
    I have up voted a request for Move Activity but for now I'm going to look into using a Copy Activity then below Delete.
    Regards,
    Jay
