  3. CSV Data Source

    the current file data source doesn't provide much value. it would be great if there was a more robust data source targeted at CSV files that would at least capture column names and perform data profiling

  4. 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:

  7. Excel Data Source

    it seems like Excel would be a logical choice for a data source while you could use the file data source it doesn't provide much in the way of metadata

  9. Enrich data source metadata with custom name value pairs

    I would like the ability to add custom metadata in the form of a name-value pair to a data source for example for the file data source, I would like to add an attribute named refreshperiod with a value of Daily. this would open up ADC for ETL Code generation scenarios using tools such as Biml it would also allow more robust custom metadata enrichment

  14. 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

  19. 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.
