Bad Request when Debugging an Azure Data Factory Pipeline

Ed Elliott ran into a problem:

Now, whenever I am troublehooting something in Azure and I come to the activity logs I am always hopeful but also always dissapointed that they don’t show more details. The bit that really annoys me is that I know Micrsoft see more detailed error information as I have been screen sharing with a support tech who used log exporer to see more detailed error messages than I see – grrrr, just show us the data! Anyway, I digress – so in the activity log, does it give a clue as to what is wrong?

No, in a word no it doesn’t. 

Read on for the conclusion, which rates as “Should have been an easy fix but the error message was completely unhelpful.”
