  2. Support Relationships for SSAS Tabular sources

    Please provide downstream relationships available to tables. E.g. in a Customer -> Sales <- Dates simple star schema and a Purchases <- Dates star schema in the same model,

    Customer would relate to Sales and Dates
    Purchases would relate to Dates
    Sales would relate to Customer and Dates
    Dates would relate to Sales, Purchases.

    This would help our analysts understand what could be used with what

  5. 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

  7. 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?

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. Mapping Reporting Services Columns

    I would like to suggest adding features as:

    For Reporting Services

    > Add Report Columns

    I undestand a report can be very complex with more than one table object, but most of the reports are more simple with regular columns;

    > Add Report Filters.

    Include information of allow null parameter, Combo Box loaded from DataSource, etc;

    Thanks!

  17. SSAS Translations to Data catalog

    Business users need to see translations of the measures/dimensions in order to understand the data. WIthout this feature it's very hard to provide value from the catalog.

  18. Option to open SQL Connections in SSMS

    The majority of our users query databases using SQL Server Management Studio rather than SSDT. It would be great if SSMS was one of the options in the "Open in" dropdown list.
