  2. 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…

  5. Adding markdown syntax to Documentation tab

    Enable support for markdown syntax in documentation tabs. This would support importing consistently formatted documentation via api and also improve the portal u/i experience

  6. Limit 'Open in' list

  8. Not able to Links. LINKS BROKEN...Hard to penetrate my org to use it if I cannot link

    1. There is no way to link to a specific source, table, etc. Annoying
    2. If I link the search result (e.g. some tags), it goes to a blank result, and then i have to press enter again to make the results appear. Very annoying. people will not use tool with these bugs!!!

  10. Security Scope Change

    I'd like the boundary for security not to be at the subscription level. I have a customer who has a data as a service model who would like to deploy a data catalog per each customers. With the current security model this isn't easily doable

  12. Add a fully featured Schema Repository

    Provide a schema repository that allows multiple technical schema to be associated with Data Entities.

    Primary use cases are to allow consumers to find data sources and then be able to technically integrate with the data source and understand the data source structure e.g. for integration or testing/validation purposes in a data pipeline.

    Should support:
    - XSD, jsonSchema, AVRO, parquet, and others
    - Versioning - a schema will change over time, all versions should be capable of being stored or retrieved.
    - More than 1 schema type per data asset. For example the same source nested json/xml data might be…

  14. Issue with relationships or related data feature.

    Is it just me or is there a bug with the relationships or related data feature? Tried re-publishing related data and the tab that should show how data can be joined is not visible. Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-catalog/data-catalog-how-to-view-related-data-assets

  15. 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

  18. Add support for synonyms.

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