  1. allow branding of the Azure Data Catalog UI

    Allow customers to add branding (logo, CSS) to Azure Data Catalog; this will aid internal customers in trusting this service as a tool where data classifications are important.

  2. Remove upper limit on Data Catalog data assets

    Implement Data Catalog using Cosmos DB thereby effectively removing the 100,000 limit on data assets. The bigger the catalog the more RUs required.

  3. Mapping Reporting Services Columns

    I would like to suggest adding features as:

    For Reporting Services

    > Add Report Columns

    I undestand a report can be very complex with more than one table object, but most of the reports are more simple with regular columns;

    > Add Report Filters.

    Include information of allow null parameter, Combo Box loaded from DataSource, etc;

    Thanks!

  6. Select from multiple connection strings for a single artifact

    We have users who will need to access an artifact from the data catalog in multiple environments (DEV, UAT, PRD). It would be good if we could associate a single artifact to multiple connection strings, and allow the user to select which connection string they need when opening the artifact.

  7. Azure Data Catalog SDK

    There is currently no SDK for querying or interacting with ADC. The only option at the moment is via the REST API

  8. Support Relationships for SSAS Tabular sources

    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 what

  9. Azure Data Catalog open Power Queries in Excel

    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.

  10. SSAS Translations to Data catalog

    Business users need to see translations of the measures/dimensions in order to understand the data. WIthout this feature it's very hard to provide value from the catalog.

  11. Delete/Flag deleted fields / tables on data source updates

    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 automated

  14. Option to open SQL Connections in SSMS

    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.

  16. Data Catalog - show more detailed progress

    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.

  17. Make Azure Data Catalog enterprise grade

    Currently the app uses ClickOnce for the installer - which is horrid - it installs the application to a random GUID folder in the user profile. It needs to be machine-based which can be automatically deployed - such as a MSI.

    It also doesn't work behind a proxy - which 99% of enterprises will have.

    Minor point - the start menu shortcut is under Microsoft Corp - Yammer is under Microsoft Corporation. Core applications are under Microsoft {Product name} - such as Office, SQL Server, Visual Studio, etc.

  19. Let us Manually Add Assets to a Container

    When you add a SQL Server asset to a Data Catalog using the application, the database is added to the Data Catalog as a container. Unfortunately, the app only supports Tables and Views, so other Assets like Table-Valued Functions and Stored Procedures have to be added manually using the Manual Entry dialog on the Portal.

    Which is an issue as Manual Entry dialog on the website doesn't support adding an Asset to a container. So even though my Table-Valued Function has the exact same connection string as assets imported via the application, it can't be added to the container.

    This…

  20. Source Type File System

    Enable hyperlink to file when using Source Type: File System. Currently, the only process I can see is to copy the link and paste in File Explorer.
