Can the azure function activity be used in a self-hosted integration runtime

John Neubecker 76 Reputation points

Based on the documentation:

  • Dispatching the following transform activities against compute resources in on-premises or Azure Virtual Network: HDInsight Hive activity (BYOC-Bring Your Own Cluster), HDInsight Pig activity (BYOC), HDInsight MapReduce activity (BYOC), HDInsight Spark activity (BYOC), HDInsight Streaming activity (BYOC), ML Studio (classic) Batch Execution activity, ML Studio (classic) Update Resource activities, Stored Procedure activity, Data Lake Analytics U-SQL activity, Custom activity (runs on Azure Batch), Lookup activity, and Get Metadata activity.

It seems like the answer is no, I just want to confirm that and ask if there's any plan to support it in the future. I've noticed while running copy data activities that 90% of the runtime is the activity being queued and was thinking that using a self-hosted integration runtime could decrease the time in queue.

    Hi John Neubecker,

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Yes, you can use Self hosted IR with Azure Functions. While creating linked service for Azure Functions under Azure Function activity, there is a field to select IR, select your selfhosted IR there.
