  1. Custom Attributes

    Please allow the ability to create custom attributes (by data source type). For example - I would like a review date field for reports so I can allow report owners to periodically indicate they have reviewed existing reports and they are still valid and tested. To do this i need to add something other than the modified date. I may also want to have a marked for deletion indicator (perhaps a date) to show that something will be removed on a date, ex I need to keep a table that contains data for a period of years I can track…

  2. Allow multiple catalogs per Organisation

    I work for an organisation that has multiple, distinct areas. My area would like to set up a catalog separate to the rest of the organisation, but still able to integrate with our Azure tenancy. Right now we can't due to the limit of one catalog per organisation.

  3. "Import List" option in Business Glossary

    There is a button to create a new glossary term, type in the description, and other attributes in the Business Glossary section of the Data Catalog. However, it would be used for a non-technical business SME to have the capability to import a bunch of terms, descriptions etc via the user interface. Maybe even map to data assets via the import. This would empower them and avoid having to depend on IT

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  19. 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.
