  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  9. Ability to be able to print catalogue into pdf

    It'd be great to be able to compile a catalogue into a pdf, with the tables all registered within chapters that could be databases.

  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. Use of Data Gateway as the connection to on premise data sources

    Today there are two mechanisms to access an on premise database: describe the conection with ADC and Data Gateway for PowerBI.

    The most flexible mechanism Data Gateway should be integrated into Data Catalog.

  14. Data Catalog - show more detailed progress

    Azure Data Catalog does not indicate any progress other than % completed. It would be hugely useful as each name of objects being registered is shown during the registration process.

  15. Azure Data Catalog: Add DR capabilities

    There is a requirement to be able to recover data to a previous point in time. This is a needed for example as a response to user error in using the registration tool or the azuredatacatalog.com website.

    The restore can be done on a catalog item level or to a point-in-time, similar to SQL Azure.

  16. 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
    SQL_AS_ADOMD
    SQL_AS_AMO
    SQL_AS_OLEDB
    prior to installing the publishing tool, but the error still persist.
    This shouldn't be so difficult

  17. Require Authorization to Create A Data Catalog

    Currently anybody with an Azure subscription can create THE data catalog instance for the entire company. This could be a contractor with an MSDN subscription for example.

    This seems to set the main permissions for who "owns" the Data Catalog for the entire company.

    Not viable for business use.

  18. Sibling terms in Business Glossary

    Currently the Business Glossary has support for Children, but I'd like to see alternatives or siblings implemented as well. There are terms that are used interchangeably to mean the same thing, and I don't see a way today to identify those.

  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

  20. Summary statistics on front page disappeared?

    Hi there,

    On the front page of my Azure Data Catalogue I used to see the number of registered assets and the number of users but this has since gone from the front page. Does anyone know how to get this back?

    Thank you in advance.
