  1. Add support for synonyms.

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

  6. "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

  10. Open With

    The Open With feature lets you only select one item for download. Need more items.

    Download to Power BI doesn't not work. No data come through

  11. 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.

  12. Require Authorization to Create A Data Catalog

    Currently anybody with an Azure subscription can create THE data catalog instance for the entire company. This could be a contractor with an MSDN subscription for example.

    This seems to set the main permissions for who "owns" the Data Catalog for the entire company.

    Not viable for business use.

  15. 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.

  16. 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. Rearrange, add, and/or remove columns in the Glossary

    The Glossary currently has limited functionality for a user. I am envisioning the look-and-feel- of Sharepoint columns where you can move a column closer to the left side just by dragging and dropping. For example, I would like to see the Definition column right after the Term column - it would be great to click on the Definition column and drop it in between the Term and Parent Term column. Would it also be possible to add a column for the Description field? Also, could we the ability to remove columns such as the Last Updated By column?

  20. Power BI Connector - Get Data via Azure Data Catalog

    I would like Azure Data Catalog to be a special Power BI Connector that supports the following scenario:

    In Power BI Desktop I click "Get Data"
    Select "Azure Data Catalog"
    Select one or more objects from the data catalog
    Click "Connect"

    A connection is made to the source(s) of the selected object(s)

    NOTE: This is a different feature from making Power BI data available in the catalog and catalog data available for reporting:
