  1. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  12. "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

  15. Top Contributors list on Portal

    To recognize the effort of individuals within an organisation, please consider adding to / replacing the existing "Top Experts" field with "Top Contributors". It's easy to have a handful of experts who don't fill in data, but within the many experts who could fill in and maintain data, only a few who regularly contribute. I would like to be rewarded for my efforts by seeing my name on this "Top Contributors", and it could provide an incentive for other experts to make a stronger effort to contribute regularly, as well.

  16. Add 'open with' to ODBC connections

    We have configured our on-premise Hive databases (which is great btw) but the 'Open With Excel | PowerBI' feature is blanked out. You have all the connection details so it should be possible to pass these details to the application. This would be a big plus for our less technical users and for the general UX.

  18. Support data subsetting

    Possibly I've not yet properly understood data catalogues, but from what I've been trying to implement in our organisation, it would be really handy if I can for example publish a table, or a stored proc, and users who find the data catalogue object they want, can then get a subset of that data. I.E. pass a where clause, or sp parameters so they only get relevant data they need. This will reduce the number of time I publish the same object but with different data available from that table/view. and give the users greater support and power to get…

  19. Let us Manually Add Assets to a Container

    When you add a SQL Server asset to a Data Catalog using the application, the database is added to the Data Catalog as a container. Unfortunately, the app only supports Tables and Views, so other Assets like Table-Valued Functions and Stored Procedures have to be added manually using the Manual Entry dialog on the Portal.

    Which is an issue as Manual Entry dialog on the website doesn't support adding an Asset to a container. So even though my Table-Valued Function has the exact same connection string as assets imported via the application, it can't be added to the container.

    This…
