    You can use REST API to trigger the autosys from Azure DF.

    To trigger an Autosys job from Azure Data Factory, you can follow the steps below:

    Create a Web Activity: In Azure Data Factory, create a Web Activity that uses the HTTP connector to send a request to the Autosys REST API. You will need to specify the endpoint URL for the REST API and the method (POST, GET, etc.) to use.

    Configure the Request Body: In the Web Activity, configure the request body to include the details of the Autosys job you want to execute. This may include the job name, job owner, and any additional parameters or flags required to execute the job.

    Configure Authentication: To authenticate with the Autosys REST API, you will need to provide credentials, such as a username and password, or a token. You can configure the authentication details in the Web Activity using the Web linked service.

    1. Run the Pipeline: Once you have created the Web Activity and configured it to trigger the Autosys job, you can run the pipeline in Azure Data Factory. The Web Activity will send a request to the Autosys REST API to execute the job.
