Using the Fail Activity in Azure Data Factory

Rayis Imayev thinks about failure:

Recently, Microsoft introduced a new Fail activity ( in the Azure Data Factory (ADF) and I wondered about a reason to fail a pipeline in ADF when my internal being tries very hard to make the pipelines successful once and for all. Yes, I understand a documented explanation that this activity can help to “customize both its error message and error code”, but why?

Click through for Rayis’s take. I’ll just be here cracking jokes about how Fail activities are banned in my code because I expect it to have a positive outlook on life.
