Can a copy activity, copy from a http source to a http destination? In the "Supported data stores and formats' in ADF documentation, I see that http is supported only as source. Is it that http cannot be a destination ? Any detail on this will be helpful, thanks.

    Hello @Kothai Ramanathan ,

    Unfortunately, Generic HTTP is not supported as sink.

    I would suggest you to provide feedback on the same:

    All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.


    This HTTP connector is supported for the following activities:

    You can copy data from an HTTP source to any supported sink data store. For a list of data stores that Copy Activity supports as sources and sinks, see Supported data stores and formats.

    You can use this HTTP connector to:

    • Retrieve data from an HTTP/S endpoint by using the HTTP GET or POST methods.
    • Retrieve data by using one of the following authentications: Anonymous, Basic, Digest, Windows, or ClientCertificate.
    • Copy the HTTP response as-is or parse it by using supported file formats and compression codecs.

    For more details, refer "Copy data from an HTTP endpoint by using Azure Data Factory".

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
