Hi Abhinav530,

Welcome to MSDN forum.

The Azure Data Factory template just works with visual studio 2015 and older version.  If you work with sepcidied version, please follow this workround to configure your visual studio. 

Note: please access this page to download and install specified Azure SDK.

BTW, the development of ADF prohect in VS2017 or newer version has been under consideration, you could access and vote it here .

Beside, you could also follow this doc to use console application to configure ADF environment in VS 2017 and VS 2019 currently.

Hope it could help you.

Best Regards,
