    Hello @Mohsen Akhavan ,
    Thanks for the ask and using the Microsoft Q&A platform .

    As I understand at this time you have couple of options .

    Use Azure databricks activity : Since you are using Python , you can use ADB activity which will call a notebook and you can run you python script . This should work .

    Use custom activity : You can use a custom activity and run the azure batch in the back ground . Please read about the same here .

    Please do let me know how it goes .
