    Hello @Guruprasath Bindumadhavan ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    You need to create an ADF custom activity to execute the R scripts in Azure Batch Service.

    Note: You can execute R scripts using only custom activity in Azure Data Factory.

    For more details, refer to Tutorial: Run R scripts as part of a pipeline through Azure Data Factory using Azure Batch.

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