  2. "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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Source Type File System

    Enable hyperlink to file when using Source Type: File System. Currently, the only process I can see is to copy the link and paste in File Explorer.

  14. Enable "Open In" for Azure Data Lake resources

    The functionality to quickly discover a data set and then "Open In" is a great user experience. When it comes to resources stored in Azure Data Lake Store (ADLS) however the "Open In" function is greyed out.

    Currently users need to click on the ADLS stored asset, copy the URL and separately open PowerBI, Get Data, Choose ADLS, paste in the URL.

    The Azure Data Catalog is a crucial part to making the Data Lake resources consumable by our user base - please make this feature available.

    (*i do note that ADLS Gen-2 is interoperable with Blob storage APIs. Given…

  15. Not has:tags showing data sets that have glossary tags in their tags

    If i launch the search query "not has:tags" it works as intended if i only have user defined tags (so no predefined glossary tags). But once i add a glossary tag to a data set (with no user defined tags) i get this one back as a result as well.
    It looks like it does not look at the glossary tags when it is searching if anything is inside of the tags.
    We are going to make heavy use of the glossary so we need to make sure this is working so we can easily find data sets that are…

  16. Use DSN for ODBC

    I'd like to connect to Treasure Data via their ODBC driver and can do it via a DSN. However, the TD driver embeds an API key and is difficult to create a connection string out of it.

    Would be quite useful for Azure Data Catalog to recognize DSN's.

  17. dax

    Add DAX generated Table code as a datasource option. We use a 100% DAX generated power BI table for our date table for all PBI reports. It would be nice to be able to reference this code data source.

  18. Import meta-data from cobol copy books as part of data asset registering, directly from MainFrames

    MainFrames contain legacy datasets whose structures are usually recorded in COBOL copybooks. If ADC can connect to MainFrames directly and import the contents of the copybooks that will be a great boost to productivity.

  19. Profile Timeout Setting

    Hive data sources can be huge and take a really long time to profile. Something is happening with my profile, but there's no feedback (that's another feature request). I believe that the profile queries are timing out. I'd like the ability to set the timeout to infinity.

  20. Profile Error

    When profiling fails, there's no error message. Please provide feedback. Note that my assumption is that it's failing as the tab doesn't appear as shown in the documentation. Could be something else went wrong, but there's nothing to say what happened.
