  1. Row-Level Security

    It would be great to implement Row-Level Security on SQL Data Warehouse.
    That would be a great solution for scenarios where (for example) we have clients like PowerBI using data from SQL warehouse, and persons who have limited data access.

      • Support Always encrypted in SQL Data warehouse

        Always Encrypted makes the data to be only available to client side applications and not visible to Database administrators also. It makes the data to be more secure. It is especially needed in the case of Azure, where PII data is stored in cloud.

        • Azure AD Universal Authentication Integration in Visual Studio

          Organizations with MFA requirements have to use AD Universal Authentication to log into Azure SQL DB/DW. This can be done through SSMS, but support for Visual Studio would unlock more users.

          • Support EXECUTE AS for stored procedures

            As part of the ELT procedure the user staging data should be able to call a transform procedure to ingest the data without having read/write permissions to the production tables.

            • default port

              Configure SQL Data Warehouse to listen on a port that is different from the default 1433 port such as port 80 and/or port 443.

              • Hide schema objects based on role

                We want to hide dbo and other custom schemas from users. We have stage, test, dbo, etc. objects in the DW. We would like to limit the schemas and/or objects that we expose to them through SQL Roles. We can limit their ability to query a certain schema, but I want to limit their ability to see it

                • Database auditing functionality in APS

                  Currently SQL DW and SQL Server allow one to audit database access. This functionality does not exist in APS. Please provide the ability to audit data access in APS as well.

                  • Grantable Schema-level truncate permission

                    Need schema level TRUNCATE access so roles for ETL processes can be granted TRUNCATE in addition to INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE and said ETL processes don't have to own the table targeted for the TRUNCATE operation.

                    • Support ALTER AUTHORIZATION for all relevant object classes

                      Need to be able to change the ownership of any object in ADW that has an owner. For example a ROLE. Currently only DATABASE, SCHEMA, and OBJECT are suported.

                        • SQL DW password policy profiles

                          We have multi-factor authentication (MFA) for AAD. Tableau and other tools connecting to data sources via ODBC cannot accommodate MFA. We can create local accounts in Azure SQL Server and SQL DW, but MUST CHANGE, CHECK EXPIRATION, and CHECK POLICY are not supported. We need to be able to enforce and report compliance with password security policies.

                          • Create specific API REST operation for scaling instead of using the generic POST

                            Because the scaling operation is included in the generic write operation, if we need to configure a least privileges permission we would need to add the ability to create and update a database, which is way more than allowing just to scale a database.

                            • database level firewall

                              The following documentation states that a database level firewall works for Azure SQL DW databases:
                              https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/system-stored-procedures/sp-set-database-firewall-rule-azure-sql-database

                              However, running the syntax mentioned results in the error:
                              Msg 15165, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
                              Could not find object 'sp_set_database_firewall_rule' or you do not have permission.

                              Please add or fix support for the database-level firewall in Azure SQL DW
