  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. Make Azure Data Catalog enterprise grade

    Currently the app uses ClickOnce for the installer - which is horrid - it installs the application to a random GUID folder in the user profile. It needs to be machine-based which can be automatically deployed - such as a MSI.

    It also doesn't work behind a proxy - which 99% of enterprises will have.

    Minor point - the start menu shortcut is under Microsoft Corp - Yammer is under Microsoft Corporation. Core applications are under Microsoft {Product name} - such as Office, SQL Server, Visual Studio, etc.

  8. Ability to Register an Azure Analysis Service

    I am unable to register an Azure Analysis Service database in the Azure Data Catalog using the publishing tool.
    Azure Analysis Services is not included in the initial Data Sources.
    Attempting to register the AAS server using the Analysis Services Data Source I consistently get an error
    "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
    I have installed the SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1 components
    SQLASADOMD
    SQLASAMO
    SQLASOLEDB
    prior to installing the publishing tool, but the error still persist.
    This shouldn't be so difficult

  10. MS Access as a data source

    It would be ideal for us to be able to add MS Access databases to ADC instead of cataloguing them manually.

  11. Notify Expert(s) of changes to friendly name, description, experts, tags or documentation

    Notifying experts of changes to an asset would enable governance of those assets that they have the best knowledge. The items, like friendly name, description, experts, tags, glossary terms and documentation would be what should be tracked. Other items like changes to column definitions or new columns that are more source driven should not tracked because it would cause extra noise the expert does not need to be validating.

  12. Remove upper limit on Data Catalog data assets

    Implement Data Catalog using Cosmos DB thereby effectively removing the 100,000 limit on data assets. The bigger the catalog the more RUs required.

  13. Make the Azure Data Catalog Client hi-DPI aware

    The client application which is downloaded and installed, is not high-DPI monitor aware. The result is that when used with a 4K or 3K monitor, the resultant font sizes are terribly small. Small font sizes degrade usability and accessibility. Please make the application high DPI aware.

  14. Add support for synonyms.

    This would make ADC much more inoperable with other data sources, like Oracle.

  16. Allow users to provide feedback on data assests

    Similar to what Microsoft has on their documentation web sites. Just a "likes this" button, and/or dislikes button. A form for adding some comments for each data asset.

  19. Allow connection to Analysis Services perspectives

    Although Analysis Services perspectives can be cataloged, when connecting to the perspective from ADC using Power BI the connection is to the parent model rather than the perspective
