    Hi @Bhavin Dedhia ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum and thanks for reaching out here.

    As you want to rename a folder in ADLS Gen2 using ADF, you can utilize ADLS Gen2 REST API and call the API using Web Activity in Azure Data Factory.

    1. ADLS Gen2 Path - Create
    2. Web activity in Azure Data Factory and Azure Synapse Analytics

    If you are comfortable in using Azure Databricks notebooks, then you may also use notebooks to execute below python code which can rename folder in ADLS Gen2. And then you can execute those ADB notebook from ADF. In case if you already have a Synapse analytics Workspace, then you can use the below code and execute it in Synapse notebook directly and attach it to a pipeline in Synapse.

    Ref doc: ADLS Gen2 - Rename or move a directory (Python)
