  1. A better way to organize the catalog for users

    It would be nice to be able to organize the objects in the catalog to make it easier for users to find what they're looking for. Folders, libraries, preferably a method they've seen elsewhere.

  2. Export search results to CSV

    After searching through the catalog for a list of specific items, it would be great if we could export that list as a csv. For example a manager may request a list of all the data-sources owned by their team, or auditors may want a list of data sources that contain specific fields.

  3. Enable search of the Documentation property contents

    Presently, the contents of the Data Asset Documentation property is not searchable. This request is to include the contents of the documentation in the data catalog search capability.

  7. Allow for a default filtering statement used for Open in.....

    A majority of the data sources we have loaded into the catalog are a 100 million+ records, quite a few being in the billions. It would be extremely useful to have the option to add a filtering statement that would narrow down the dataset being pulled by a user when they try to open a report in any of the available options especially Power BI

  9. Glossary Term Tagging (GDPR)

    I'd like to be able to add multiple tags to individual glossary terms. A specific example would be to identify which terms were PII or pseudonymous etc. At the moment we have to tag a field with both the Glossary Term AND a separate tag.

  11. 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

  12. Allow external experts to be added to datasources

    Due to the one catalog per organisation limitation we have had to set up a new organisation for our Data Catalog. Because of this we can't list any experts on our data sources as they are not part of the 'catalog' organisation.

    The ability to add external email addresses as experts would let us overcome this issue.

    This would also be valuable as we rely on a number of data sources from external agencies, and would like to be able to list their contact email as an expert also.

  13. data catalog

    Data Catalog: No Preview Error for data lake

    Azure Data Catalog does not preview data lake files like csv, tsv. It would be nice if we add this feature.

    Customers are looking for single stop data explorer and data governance for all data tools like ADL, AAS, Azure Sql, Storage. Customers are aware that few unstructured data can't be avialble for preview.

    However, whichever data can be visible thru web (HTML) should be available thru Data Catalog.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. Graphical, hierarchical representation of Glossary

    The Glossary is extremely useful, but is only "viewable" as a table with a Parent column. It would be great to be able to switch to a visual, hierarchical view showing the hierarchy.

  20. Azure Data Catalog as the Metastore for Hive

    In, AWS Glue Data Catalog acts as the Metastore for Hive, so there is no need for Azure SQL Database for hosting a hive metastore. So AWS was able to form a complete ecosystem that interacts well with EMR or Any other Compute like Athena,databricks, glue jobs, etc. Azure also needs to adopt the same strategy to tie the various Big Data computes together with the data catalog
