  1. Able to record Classification at the Glossary

    It would be great to being able to Classify business glossary terms (e.g. Restricted, Confidential or PII/PHI, etc). Then any asset column which is tagged with that business glossary term would automatically inherit that classification value. Would same of maintenance and ensure consistency for those customers who use (and pay for) Business Glossary.

  3. Sibling terms in Business Glossary

    Currently the Business Glossary has support for Children, but I'd like to see alternatives or siblings implemented as well. There are terms that are used interchangeably to mean the same thing, and I don't see a way today to identify those.

  5. Export sources, objects, definitions, and business terms glossary

    The ability to export the data, or connect it it, would be useful. I'd like to make the business terms glossary available my to my entire organization on a tool like SharePoiint so non-technical staff don't have to navigate a look like this one.

  6. Allow users to provide feedback on data assests

    Similar to what Microsoft has on their documentation web sites. Just a "likes this" button, and/or dislikes button. A form for adding some comments for each data asset.

  16. Azure Data Catalog Backup Feature

    It would be fantastic if ADC offered a backup feature so we could roll back to a configurable selection of restore points in case users performed an operation that resulted in overwriting of valid data.

  17. Enable search of the Documentation property contents

    Presently, the contents of the Data Asset Documentation property is not searchable. This request is to include the contents of the documentation in the data catalog search capability.

  18. Top Contributors list on Portal

    To recognize the effort of individuals within an organisation, please consider adding to / replacing the existing "Top Experts" field with "Top Contributors". It's easy to have a handful of experts who don't fill in data, but within the many experts who could fill in and maintain data, only a few who regularly contribute. I would like to be rewarded for my efforts by seeing my name on this "Top Contributors", and it could provide an incentive for other experts to make a stronger effort to contribute regularly, as well.

  19. data catalog

    Data Catalog: No Preview Error for data lake

    Azure Data Catalog does not preview data lake files like csv, tsv. It would be nice if we add this feature.

    Customers are looking for single stop data explorer and data governance for all data tools like ADL, AAS, Azure Sql, Storage. Customers are aware that few unstructured data can't be avialble for preview.

    However, whichever data can be visible thru web (HTML) should be available thru Data Catalog.

  20. Azure SQL Data Security does not propagate to the Data Catalog

    The biggest deficiency that I see with this Catalog is that data security implemented within an Azure SQL database does not propagate to the Data Catalog, which puts sensitive and confidential data at risk. I have implemented a host of data security protocols (Roles, Column Permissions, Masking and Row Level permissions, etc) and it's all for not within the catalog. This requires additional work (some of which cannot be replicated) to protect the data within the catalog. It appears the only option I have is to create views for each group for every data asset in order to not inadvertently…
