Wild cards http

Hassan Waseem 1 Reputation point

I am creating an data factory pipeline to get file of same name through different http links. As the name of the http is almost same and only date is changed. Thus I am using wild card for that. But it isnt working. Is their any way to get these historical files. Thanks

HTTP: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media_file/2021-11/MPI_Directory_by_Establishment_Name_0.xls
with wildcard in source: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media_file/2021-??/MPI_Directory_by_Establishment_Name_0.xls

    Hi @HassanWaseem-7729 ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum and thanks for reaching out.

    Unfortunately, you cannot use the wild card in HTTP connector URL.

    Workaround may be you will have to parameterize the URL and pass the parameters values for dates dynamically. Basically you will have to get the list (array) of dates you need to pass to the URL and have a ForEach activity and pass the array list and loop through each item to get the desired data.

    But if you have any feedback to improve the product, I would recommend you to please submit your request in Azure feedback forum here: https://feedback.azure.com/d365community
