  1. 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

  2. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  12. Azure Data Catalog open Power Queries in Excel

    Allow Azure Data Catalog to enumerate the Power Apps/PowerBI CDS and open in Excel. Also allow connections such as SQL tables to have a defined Power Query to open in place of the direct table as governed by an admin/expert.

  17. Allow end users to link directly to a catalog object and glossary item

    We'd like the ability to add links to reports and applications that go directly to the data definitions or glossary items located in the Azure Data Catalog. This way our end users can quickly and easily reference trusted source data along with expanding the usability of the catalog.
