Publishing improvements in 'Data Factory' mode


When not configured to a git repository, you will now see a list of edited resources when clicking 'Publish all'. 



This has been available when git is configured for some time. For more information, see source control in ADF .


Improvements to tumbling window trigger dependency monitoring


Two improvements have been made to the tumbling window trigger monitoring experience.

  • The list view for tumbling window trigger dependencies now displays the same information as the Gantt viewtwt2.png
  • The Gantt chart will display timestamp for individual windowstwt1.png
