  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. API support to extract schema/preview/profiling info from data source

    ADC Rest API should have option to extract schema/columns/preview/profiling info from data source/asset automatically like registration tool.
    Currently we need to add such things manually in payload.

  9. 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.

  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.

  16. "Import List" option in Business Glossary

    There is a button to create a new glossary term, type in the description, and other attributes in the Business Glossary section of the Data Catalog. However, it would be used for a non-technical business SME to have the capability to import a bunch of terms, descriptions etc via the user interface. Maybe even map to data assets via the import. This would empower them and avoid having to depend on IT
