  2. Power BI Connector - Get Data via Azure Data Catalog

    I would like Azure Data Catalog to be a special Power BI Connector that supports the following scenario:

    In Power BI Desktop I click "Get Data"
    Select "Azure Data Catalog"
    Select one or more objects from the data catalog
    Click "Connect"

    A connection is made to the source(s) of the selected object(s)

    NOTE: This is a different feature from making Power BI data available in the catalog and catalog data available for reporting:

  3. Share a roadmap whether Azure Data Catalog is still being developed

    There's a year since the last update and it looks like the great concept is getting no more funding? Would be good to get verification for this

  7. Rearrange, add, and/or remove columns in the Glossary

    The Glossary currently has limited functionality for a user. I am envisioning the look-and-feel- of Sharepoint columns where you can move a column closer to the left side just by dragging and dropping. For example, I would like to see the Definition column right after the Term column - it would be great to click on the Definition column and drop it in between the Term and Parent Term column. Would it also be possible to add a column for the Description field? Also, could we the ability to remove columns such as the Last Updated By column?

  8. Add a fully featured Schema Repository

    Provide a schema repository that allows multiple technical schema to be associated with Data Entities.

    Primary use cases are to allow consumers to find data sources and then be able to technically integrate with the data source and understand the data source structure e.g. for integration or testing/validation purposes in a data pipeline.

    Should support:
    - XSD, jsonSchema, AVRO, parquet, and others
    - Versioning - a schema will change over time, all versions should be capable of being stored or retrieved.
    - More than 1 schema type per data asset. For example the same source nested json/xml data might be…

  9. Require Authorization to Create A Data Catalog

    Currently anybody with an Azure subscription can create THE data catalog instance for the entire company. This could be a contractor with an MSDN subscription for example.

    This seems to set the main permissions for who "owns" the Data Catalog for the entire company.

    Not viable for business use.

  13. Use Power BI for displaying data catalog data

    We love data catalog! To be able to encourage use in our company and create a buzz, we’d love to create some visuals in power BI to show what we have in catalog - number of datasets, tags etc.

    I couldn’t see Catalog as an available source in Power BI though

  16. Catalog Analytics

    Azure Data Catalog does not have any analytics on user or the registered data itself. As a curator in the Azure Data Catalog, it would be great to see the following analytics:

    - Search keywords statistics
    - Registered data rating and reviews
    - Failed search (searched keyword with zero results or no result selected)
    - Registered Data usage
    -etc

  17. Issue with relationships or related data feature.

    Is it just me or is there a bug with the relationships or related data feature? Tried re-publishing related data and the tab that should show how data can be joined is not visible. Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-catalog/data-catalog-how-to-view-related-data-assets

  18. Ability to Register an Azure Analysis Service

    I am unable to register an Azure Analysis Service database in the Azure Data Catalog using the publishing tool.
    Azure Analysis Services is not included in the initial Data Sources.
    Attempting to register the AAS server using the Analysis Services Data Source I consistently get an error
    "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
    I have installed the SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1 components
    SQL_AS_ADOMD
    SQL_AS_AMO
    SQL_AS_OLEDB
    prior to installing the publishing tool, but the error still persist.
    This shouldn't be so difficult

  20. Capture metadata of ETL processes designed in Data Factory

    Big data platform are mainly powered by two major components in their architecture; Source-to-target mapping and ETL processes. So the analyst performing analytics on a specific dataset needs to understand where the data came from, which business rules applied on the data while in transient,...etc. So, an analyst could create a lineage diagram to help them understand the data movement in details. In the same time, data engineers could generate an impact analysis on ETL procesees and target datasets in case any data source was changed.

    The short version is Data Catalog to harvest metadata from Data Factory that describes…
