ADF - Copy Activity Copy all cosmosdb container once to files [Request a feature]

Now, Copy Activity only can copy one CosmosDB Container to Azure Storage. And we have 2000 containers in one CosmosDB every day, some of them are big, some of them are small. If we use ADF Copy Activity, We have to pay a lot of money.


Copy Activity: 2000(customers)*30(days)* 0.0667(DIU-hour) = 4002 $
Activity: 30(days)*(4+2000 customers *2 (loop twice) )=120k => 120(k)*1($/k) = 120$


If ADF could copy all containers into Azure Storage as files, it would save a lot of money for us. (Just copy once)


If ADF has no plan to improve Copy Activity, maybe we will use Azure Function to backup data.
