Working with Self-Hosted Integration Runtimes

Craig Porteous walks us through some of the planning necessary for self-hosted integration runtimes:

If your Data Factory contains a self-hosted Integration runtime, you will need to do some planning work before everything will work nicely with CI/CD pipelines. Unlike all other resources in your Data Factory, runtimes won’t deploy cleanly between environments, primarily as you connect the installed runtime directly to a single Data Factory. (We can add more runtime nodes to a single Data Factory but we cannot share a single node between many data factories*). An excerpt from Microsoft’s docs on Continuous integration and delivery in Azure Data Factory mentions this caveat.
