  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
