Hi All,

Is there way I can figure out the activities where a particular data set is used? Same way we have the references to linked service under related column?

Wanted to delete the data sets which are not used by any activity. So, wondering is there an easy way to find it out.

    Based on my understanding unfortunately there is no direct way as seen for linked services.

    you would have to extract the ARM template and search for that dataset as references :

    This can be done manually or you can write a powershell or some coding to parse through the ARM template for that dataset names and verify the dependencies if need be.
