After searching through the catalog for a list of specific items, it would be great if we could export that list as a csv. For example a manager may request a list of all the data-sources owned by their team, or auditors may want a list of data sources that contain specific fields.1 vote
Due to the one catalog per organisation limitation we have had to set up a new organisation for our Data Catalog. Because of this we can't list any experts on our data sources as they are not part of the 'catalog' organisation.
The ability to add external email addresses as experts would let us overcome this issue.
This would also be valuable as we rely on a number of data sources from external agencies, and would like to be able to list their contact email as an expert also.3 votes
The majority of our users query databases using SQL Server Management Studio rather than SSDT. It would be great if SSMS was one of the options in the "Open in" dropdown list.1 vote
Somehow the data source update process needs to cope with deleted tables and fields.
We are often renaming fields/table and deprecating them and this is an area that allows the ADC to get out of sync with the actual data source.
Either a hard delete or even some kind of soft delete method would be good. Please also allow this to be automated1 vote
Please provide downstream relationships available to tables. E.g. in a Customer -> Sales <- Dates simple star schema and a Purchases <- Dates star schema in the same model,
Customer would relate to Sales and Dates
Purchases would relate to Dates
Sales would relate to Customer and Dates
Dates would relate to Sales, Purchases.
This would help our analysts understand what could be used with what2 votes
Currently each measure is a global object and has no relationship to the table that it is actually in. With a very large model, this makes users life more difficult than it needs to be.1 vote
I'd like the boundary for security not to be at the subscription level. I have a customer who has a data as a service model who would like to deploy a data catalog per each customers. With the current security model this isn't easily doable1 vote
Applying Artificial Intelligence to tag columns and objects when doing data profiling. For example, when profiling and the field is FName, you look at the data and provide a confidence that this is First Name.4 votes
To enable non-interactive automation scenarios it should be possible to connect as a service principal2 votes
Support for service principals access is currently in development, with available planned in Q4 CY2017.
There is currently no SDK for querying or interacting with ADC. The only option at the moment is via the REST API2 votes
A Swagger-based SDK for the Data Catalog REST API is currently in development, with availability expected in late Q$ CY2017 or early Q1 CY2018.
Give choice to those customers that want to have hybrid cloud to provide data catalog features through SQL Server.1 vote
There are currently no plans to deliver an on-premises version of Azure Data Catalog.
The client application which is downloaded and installed, is not high-DPI monitor aware. The result is that when used with a 4K or 3K monitor, the resultant font sizes are terribly small. Small font sizes degrade usability and accessibility. Please make the application high DPI aware.4 votes
Support for high-DPI displays is on the Data Catalog backlog. In the interim, this article provides some information and suggested workarounds:
data sources can be updated frequently - currently, a manual update is required to keep fields/tables in sync.

Allow Azure Data Catalog to enumerate the Power Apps/PowerBI CDS and open in Excel. Also allow connections such as SQL tables to have a defined Power Query to open in place of the direct table as governed by an admin/expert.8 votes
Provide the capability for Azure Data Catalog to discover/crawl/catalog BEx queries developed against SAP BW data sources.4 votes
Support for SAP BW data sources is currently under development. Once this capability is available, we can investigate adding support for BEx Queries.
Azure Data Catalog does not indicate any progress other than % completed. It would be hugely useful as each name of objects being registered is shown during the registration process.2 votes
