In the coming days, you will see a small change to your Azure Data Factory authoring experience. What used to be the General tab is moving to a brand new properties pane on the right-hand side of the authoring canvas.
The properties pane will only apply to top-level resources such as Pipelines, Datasets, and Data Flows. It will contain properties such as name, description, annotations and other high-level properties. Sub-resources such as Pipeline activities and Data Flow transformations will continue to be editable via the panel at the bottom of the canvas.
The properties pane will only be open by default on resource creation. To edit it, click on the properties pane icon located in the top-right corner of the canvas.
While currently it will only contain the contents of the General tab, this pane will be built out to include other useful information such as related resources. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
