Azure data factory now supports setting custom metadata when sink to Azure Blob Storage or Azure Data Lake Gen2 in copy activity. With this capability, it'll be more flexible for data factory user to define the metadata in sink side with below allowed data values:

  • $$LASTMODIFIED - a reserved variable indicates to store the source files' last modified time. Apply to file-based source with binary format only.
  • Expression
  • Static value
