This is a double post with MSDN but didn't get any help there so I'm hoping some expert sees it here.

I started from the example found at

"name": "SinkDataset",

    "properties": {

        "type": "AzureBlob",

        "typeProperties": {

            "folderPath": "adftutorial/incrementalcopy",

            "fileName": "@CONCAT('Incremental-', pipeline().RunId, '.txt')", 

            "format": {

                "type": "TextFormat"



My code became

"typeProperties": {

            "fileName": "S1073_PBI_DAY_JUSTIF_VW.csv",

            "folderPath": "@CONCAT('bict2233/data-in/day/', @{dataset().TriggerRunTime})",

            "format": {

                "type": "TextFormat",


But I'm getting this error

Invoke-AzureRmDataFactoryV2Pipeline : HTTP Status Code: BadRequest

Error Code: BadRequest

Error Message: The template validation failed: 'the string character '@' at position '32' is not expected..'.

+          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    + CategoryInfo          : CloseError: (:) [Invoke-AzureRmDataFactoryV2Pipeline], ErrorResponseException

 Any idea why?

  • Here in the problem in your code

"folderPath": "@concat('bict2233/data-in/day/', formatDateTime(dataset().TriggerRunTime,'yyyyMMddHH'))"


  • It must be re-written in this way:

"folderPath": {

"value": "@concat('bict2233/data-in/day/', formatDateTime(dataset().TriggerRunTime,'yyyyMMddHH'))",

"type": "Expression"
