Azure Data factory production backup process


Hi Team,

We are migration the current ADF entities from manual to automation deployment following some of the git branching strategy.
Please help me out in knowing the best backup process for restoring the existing ADF environment for Production as the prod is not integrated with any source control .
I see , for ADF non prod backup is automatically generated by azure devops as we have integrated ADF non prod with ADO.

Appreciate your response.

    Hi @Koiguri, Sandhya Rani (Cognizant) ,

    Thanks for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    If I understand correctly, you are looking for backing up PROD ADF. Please correct me If I am wrong.

    Usually, Its not needed as your DEV ADF will connected to repo that release pipeline deploys this in to different environments. So if something goes wrong with other environments then we will be always having an option to re-run release pipeline or deploy from DEV ADF to other environments from scratch.

    Still, for some reason if you would like to take backup of PROD ADF, then you can consider downloading ARM template of PROD ADF and keeping it in some backup location.

    Please let us know how it goes or if any further quires.
