  3. Azure SQL Data Security does not propagate to the Data Catalog

    The biggest deficiency that I see with this Catalog is that data security implemented within an Azure SQL database does not propagate to the Data Catalog, which puts sensitive and confidential data at risk. I have implemented a host of data security protocols (Roles, Column Permissions, Masking and Row Level permissions, etc) and it's all for not within the catalog. This requires additional work (some of which cannot be replicated) to protect the data within the catalog. It appears the only option I have is to create views for each group for every data asset in order to not inadvertently…

  5. Support data subsetting

    Possibly I've not yet properly understood data catalogues, but from what I've been trying to implement in our organisation, it would be really handy if I can for example publish a table, or a stored proc, and users who find the data catalogue object they want, can then get a subset of that data. I.E. pass a where clause, or sp parameters so they only get relevant data they need. This will reduce the number of time I publish the same object but with different data available from that table/view. and give the users greater support and power to get…

  6. Allow AAD Guest Users

    On a project for a large national public body and they have stakeholders across 15 Regional Directorates and several Governmental organisations. The Data Catalog needs to be available to all of them. We employ the Azure AD B2B model for granting rights to externals for collaboration in O365 but we can't add them to the Data Catalog so they can't do data discovery or request access to data resources. I can't imagine we are the only org with this kind of scenario...We need AAD Guest Access.

  7. Share a roadmap whether Azure Data Catalog is still being developed

    There's a year since the last update and it looks like the great concept is getting no more funding? Would be good to get verification for this

  8. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  16. Catalog Analytics

    Azure Data Catalog does not have any analytics on user or the registered data itself. As a curator in the Azure Data Catalog, it would be great to see the following analytics:


    • Search keywords statistics

    • Registered data rating and reviews

    • Failed search (searched keyword with zero results or no result selected)

    • Registered Data usage
      -etc
