Is it possible to trigger an Azure Data Factory Pipeline when a file is deleted from BLOB storage

Jay 506 Reputation points

I'm going to have a pipeline which selects data from an on prem sql server db, into csv file and then to Blob and then to Share Point (no ADF connector to SharePoint).

I don't want it running every 5mins on a schedule, sometimes it may run 20 times in a day and other times only 1 time in a week.

The users decide when they need to file created.

Is it possible for a user to manually trigger an Azure Data Factory Pipeline?
or other option
Is it possible to trigger an Azure Data Factory Pipeline when a user removes the current file from BLOB storage?

Trying to workout how best to do this...

    You can try having Event based trigger which will trigger the pipeline as soon as blob/file is deleted from your storage account.

    Refer the screenshot in step 7 in this document -
