Cannot reference to an invalid or deleted Credential object

Getting an error in ADF, cannot validate some linked services. Pretty sure this is a bug introduced sometime between 2nd and 6th of July 2021, as I have an older session open where this validation works.

I can't deploy changes for this reason, please fix this :/

    Hi Shaik,

    Thanks for following up! No, this issue was due to a bug in ADF showing false validation errors. This issue has been fixed since.

    Hi @Dmitri Ivanov ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for posting your query.

    Looks like linked services or other configurations which are getting used inside listed activities are deleted or missing.

    Please try click on each of them to see the same. Kindly make sure you fill all mandatory configurations inside those activities with valid details to avoid such validation errors. Thank you

    Hope this helps
