using Pipeline to interact with users through a user interface

Hello everyone,

I am seeking advice on whether it is possible to utilize Microsoft Fabric Pipeline for user interaction via a user interface, preferably using built-in UI components.

Specifically, I am working on building a pipeline that involves the following steps:

  1. A user provides an Excel file as input to the pipeline.
  2. The pipeline processes the file, performing various operations.
  3. If the pipeline encounters any uncertainties or issues, such as ambiguity in selecting columns or ranges, I would like to display relevant information to the user.
  4. Ideally, the user should be able to make choices or decisions within the interface.
  5. The pipeline completes processing the file

I would greatly appreciate any insights, recommendations, or examples of how Microsoft Fabric Pipeline can be used in such a scenario.


Thank you in advance for your help!

Best regards,

@Oleg_Ponomarev Thanks for posting your question in Microsoft Fabric Community

Have you looked into dataflow gen2? Pipelines can be used to further orchestrate dataflow gen2.

You can also achieve this via notebooks if you’re looking for more flexibility in parameterization. Since pipelines is for orchestrating data processes, it is not a good idea to pass excel file data as a parameter to the notebook via notebook activity.

Instead, pass the path of the Excel file in one lake/ LH to the notebook.

I hope this information helps
