Templates are predefined Azure Data Factory pipelines that allow you to get started quickly with Data Factory. Templates are useful when you're new to Data Factory and want to get started quickly. These templates reduce the development time for building data integration projects thereby improving developer productivity.
Create Data Factory pipelines from templates
You can get started creating a Data Factory pipeline from a template in the following two ways:
Select Pipeline templates in the Discover more section of the Data Factory home page to open the template gallery.
On the Author tab in Resource Explorer, select +, then select Pipeline from template to open the template gallery.
Out of the box Data Factory templates
Data Factory uses Azure Resource Manager templates for saving data factory pipeline templates. You can see all the Resource Manager templates, along with the manifest file used for out of the box Data Factory templates, in the official Azure Data Factory GitHub repo. The predefined templates provided by Microsoft include but are not limited to the following items:
Copy from <source> to <destination>
From Google Big Query to Azure Data Lake Store Gen 2
From HDF to Azure Data Lake Store Gen 2
From Netezza to Azure Data Lake Store Gen 1
From SQL Server on premises to Azure SQL Database
From SQL Server on premises to Azure Synapse Analytics
From Oracle on premises to Azure Synapse Analytics
- Schedule Azure-SSIS Integration Runtime to execute SSIS packages
You can also save a pipeline as a template by selecting Save as template on the Pipeline tab.
After checking the My templates box in the Template gallery page, you can view pipelines saved as templates in the right pane of this page.
To use the My Templates feature, you have to enable GIT integration. Both Azure DevOps GIT and GitHub are supported.
Community members are now welcome to contribute to the Template Gallery. You will be able to see these templates when you filter by Contributor.
Community template submissions will be reviewed by the Azure Data Factory team. If your submission, does not meet our guidelines or quality checks, we will not merge your template into the gallery.
