  1. Increase the size of description fields in columns

    At the moment, the sizes of the description fields are tiny. it'd be great to make them bigger!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. Show all data assets

    There is no simple way to view all data assets - on the home where it shows the number of data assets allow the user to click this and then present all the data assets on screen.

    Once a search has been done it is very difficult to remove it

  8. Add Read Only Application Intent on SQL Server connections

    Allow simple specification of Read Only Application Intent on connections to a SQL Server Availability Group Listener. User ad-hoc sql access is typically steered to read only replicas and we would find this feature very useful.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Azure SQL Data Security does not propagate to the Data Catalog

    The biggest deficiency that I see with this Catalog is that data security implemented within an Azure SQL database does not propagate to the Data Catalog, which puts sensitive and confidential data at risk. I have implemented a host of data security protocols (Roles, Column Permissions, Masking and Row Level permissions, etc) and it's all for not within the catalog. This requires additional work (some of which cannot be replicated) to protect the data within the catalog. It appears the only option I have is to create views for each group for every data asset in order to not inadvertently…

  16. 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.

  17. SSAS Tabular - Please allow identifying the table of a measure

    Currently each measure is a global object and has no relationship to the table that it is actually in. With a very large model, this makes users life more difficult than it needs to be.

  18. sharing a single asset

    A feature I'm looking for is the ability to share a single asset via URL with end-users. Current, there is no way to send a user a direct link to an asset; for purposes of, you might be interested in consuming asset x. Even a URL copy button on each asset would be enough.

    The search query string doesn't accomplish what I'm describing above.

    If you want to take it one step further, sharing multiple datasets would be an excellent enhancement.

  20. Highlight searched column name

    Currently only the table/view name gets highlighted when we search for a data asset/a column within.
    Eg: Table Emp with columns ID, Name, Address.
    I search for ID, then the table EMP is filtered and i see all the columns in it.
    If a data source has 100's of columns, it becomes difficult to actually locate the column among the others.
    Better option is to highlight the table and the underlying column or filter out the columns based on the searched keyword and display only those related.
