Common Data Service / Dataverse missing fields

Azure Data Factory (Microsofts ETL tool) has a connector that connects to the common data service (now Microsoft Dataverse). A client of ours is using Azure Data Factory as an ETL solution for their Data Warehouse. Recently we noticed none of the multi-select fields are populating in the Data Warehouse. I have traced this back to the fields not appearing in the connections to the Common Data Service via Azure Data Factory. I have verified the fields to exist in the target environment and they are marked as searchable. I find it very hard to believe that Microsoft Azure Data Factory and the Common Data Service are unable to facilitate this task. I have tried to search for documentation but the rate at which components are being renamed makes in nearly impossible to find anything on the outdated MSDN (which still refers to choices fields as multi-select picklists 2013 I think?)

If anyone knows or can point to anything about "choices" fields (formerly multi-select optionsets, formerly multi-select picklists) and the common data service it would be a great help. Even something that officially states it is not available.

Have a great day. Thanks for the time.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your query.

    As of now, MultiSelectPicklist is not supported with Azure Data Factory's Dataverse connector:
