delete if - data flow - issue

arkiboys 9,686 Reputation points

I am using parquet file for both source and sink.
The screen-shots below show the settings for update if and delete if settings in the sink activity of the data flow which is set to Delta dataset...
do you see why the Delete if does not work (If I delete a row at source, then the destination still keeps the row)
note that the upsert if seems to be working fine

    Hi @arkiboys ,

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    You are using true() as condition for both "Upsert If" and "Delete If" in Alter row transformation. That means, all rows from data will match both Upsert If & Delete If conditions. But Order takes priority here. Since rows are already marked as Upsert If(as Upsert If defined first), rows will not be marked as delete if.

    Use the Alter Row transformation to set insert, delete, update, and upsert policies on rows. You can add one-to-many conditions as expressions. These conditions should be specified in order of priority, as each row will be marked with the policy corresponding to the first-matching expression.

    Please check below screenshots with sample example to explain same.



    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
