Data Pipeline Copy Data SQL to JSON data type error


I'm getting the same error for a numeric(14,0) datatype as well so this appears to be a bug. Anyone else seeing this?


I'm doing some testing on Data pipelines pulling data from on premise SQL. I'm getting the following error when trying to write data into JSON files. The error appears to an issue around data type. The source table uses a user defined data type of [decimal](25, 10). The error I'm getting is the following, which indicates an issue with Decimal data type. Anyone know if this is a bug or a limitation?
