  1. Show all data assets

    There is no simple way to view all data assets - on the home where it shows the number of data assets allow the user to click this and then present all the data assets on screen.

    Once a search has been done it is very difficult to remove it

  4. Add Read Only Application Intent on SQL Server connections

    Allow simple specification of Read Only Application Intent on connections to a SQL Server Availability Group Listener. User ad-hoc sql access is typically steered to read only replicas and we would find this feature very useful.

  6. View import incomplete, incomplete on data preview

    The process of importing views from a SQL Server (Azure SQL Server with Elastic Cloud) contains the following errors:
    * introduces a new column (named '0') at the start of the data preview
    * only returns a single record
    * the new column contains the value false in the preview

    Correct related results:
    * This new column does not appear in the Columns tab

    Expected outcome:
    * 20 records in data preview like tables
    * No additional column in Preview tab
    * No additional column in Columns tab

  7. Highlight searched column name

    Currently only the table/view name gets highlighted when we search for a data asset/a column within.
    Eg: Table Emp with columns ID, Name, Address.
    I search for ID, then the table EMP is filtered and i see all the columns in it.
    If a data source has 100's of columns, it becomes difficult to actually locate the column among the others.
    Better option is to highlight the table and the underlying column or filter out the columns based on the searched keyword and display only those related.

  14. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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
    SQLASADOMD
    SQLASAMO
    SQLASOLEDB
    prior to installing the publishing tool, but the error still persist.
    This shouldn't be so difficult

  20. Add support for synonyms.

    This would make ADC much more inoperable with other data sources, like Oracle.
