  2. Enable "Open In" for Azure Data Lake resources

    The functionality to quickly discover a data set and then "Open In" is a great user experience. When it comes to resources stored in Azure Data Lake Store (ADLS) however the "Open In" function is greyed out.

    Currently users need to click on the ADLS stored asset, copy the URL and separately open PowerBI, Get Data, Choose ADLS, paste in the URL.

    The Azure Data Catalog is a crucial part to making the Data Lake resources consumable by our user base - please make this feature available.

    (*i do note that ADLS Gen-2 is interoperable with Blob storage APIs. Given…

  3. Not has:tags showing data sets that have glossary tags in their tags

    If i launch the search query "not has:tags" it works as intended if i only have user defined tags (so no predefined glossary tags). But once i add a glossary tag to a data set (with no user defined tags) i get this one back as a result as well.
    It looks like it does not look at the glossary tags when it is searching if anything is inside of the tags.
    We are going to make heavy use of the glossary so we need to make sure this is working so we can easily find data sets that are…

  4. Increase the size of description fields in columns

    At the moment, the sizes of the description fields are tiny. it'd be great to make them bigger!

  5. dax

    Add DAX generated Table code as a datasource option. We use a 100% DAX generated power BI table for our date table for all PBI reports. It would be nice to be able to reference this code data source.

  6. Profile Timeout Setting

    Hive data sources can be huge and take a really long time to profile. Something is happening with my profile, but there's no feedback (that's another feature request). I believe that the profile queries are timing out. I'd like the ability to set the timeout to infinity.

  7. Profile Error

    When profiling fails, there's no error message. Please provide feedback. Note that my assumption is that it's failing as the tab doesn't appear as shown in the documentation. Could be something else went wrong, but there's nothing to say what happened.

  8. Profile Existing Asset

    Often profiling fails or at least doesn't show the profile. The only recovery method appears to be re-registering the asset. This can be quite painful. Please provide a way to profile an asset that is already registered in the catalog.

  9. Not able to Links. LINKS BROKEN...Hard to penetrate my org to use it if I cannot link


    1. There is no way to link to a specific source, table, etc. Annoying

    2. If I link the search result (e.g. some tags), it goes to a blank result, and then i have to press enter again to make the results appear. Very annoying. people will not use tool with these bugs!!!

  10. Glossary Associated Assets Aggregation

    In the Glossary, if I select a "leaf" term that has been used to tag individual fields, I see a list of Associated Assets. However, if I go up a level (e.g. from "First Name" to "Customer") I don't see any Associated Assets. It would be great to see an aggregated view of all the child glossary terms.

  11. Option to include an index table so search can search the actual data

    I want someone to find data sources based on the search finding terms in the actual data - use case is "give me all data sources in the catalog that have a reference to Coca-Cola". These terms wouldn't be in the metadata. This could be implemented using Azure Search, but however it is done a discreet index table could be created and associated with a published dataset.

    Having a separate index would mean the author could create something that does not include sensitive data

  14. What about Hyperion as data source for data catalog service?

    What about Hyperion as data source for data catalog service in Azure?
    Do we have any custom method to register any custom data source in Azure?

  15. SSAS Tabular - Please allow identifying the table of a measure

    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.

  16. Security Scope Change

    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 doable

  17. Make the Azure Data Catalog Client hi-DPI aware

    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.

  18. Azure Data Catalog: Add DR capabilities

    There is a requirement to be able to recover data to a previous point in time. This is a needed for example as a response to user error in using the registration tool or the azuredatacatalog.com website.

    The restore can be done on a catalog item level or to a point-in-time, similar to SQL Azure.
