Hi Eexperts

My company has an Azure subscription, but DO NOT use data factory for ETL workloads and I do not have permission to create one neither the company wants to invest in this.

My question is do we have any SANDBOX kind of application so that I can apply my learning and learn practically, Free AZURE SUBSCRIPTION of $200 also do not allow data factory creation.

I dont have a budget to subscribe for PAY AS YOU GO subscription, How do I practice data factory then

    HI @Zahid ,

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

    Unfortunately there is no SANDBOX kind of application. But you should be able to use Azure Free trial subscription of $200 credit to create a data factory and use with few activities to explore. I just created a free trial account and I was able to create a Data factory and use it.

    Other option is if you are a Visual Studio subscriber, you can use Microsoft Azure at no extra charge. With your monthly Azure DevTest individual credit, Azure is your personal sandbox for dev/test. You can provision virtual machines, cloud services, and other Azure resources. Credit amounts vary by subscription level. For more info please refer to this doc: Use Microsoft Azure in Visual Studio subscriptions

    Hope this info helps. Let us know if you have further query.
