  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!!!

  6. 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

  7. Select multiple tables to open in Power BI

    I can't believe this is still not a thing. So simple. currently I can select one table and open it in Power BI Desktop or Excel. I'd like to pick multiple tables and open them in Power BI. For a start, at least multiple tables from one data source, if cross-source privacy settings are a concern. if all tables are from one source, oyu only need one Connector. it really should not be that hard? you alredy have all the plumbing in place...

  8. Allow column descriptions to be populated by uploading an excel document

    Column descriptions are widely used as business assumptions and they take a long time to populate manually. Allowing the ability to upload pre-populated fields will benefit everyone!

  10. Support dynamic data masking for data preview

    How to treat sensitive data? It would be nice to implement dynamic data masking or encryption for sensitive columns (and also custom permissions to see unmasked data).

  17. Generate Reports On the Basis of Tags or including tags

    Requirement: I am looking for a possible way to generate some kind of output(report) on the basis of tags in form of excel or CSV or SQL table. So that it becomes easier to pass the reports to higher authorities(managers).
    Actual Need: It is not possible for everyone to go to each asset and check the marked tags one by one.
    So any solution or functionality that can generate some kind of report or pivot data on the basis of the tag is really helpful for Catalog users.

    I have voted for a similar type of issue: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/906052-data-catalog/suggestions/32317552-export-search-results-to-csv

  18. Index data in tape libraries

    Add tape libraries on-premises as a data source to index. Nice way for ADC to shine making the last long mile of data visible and accessible to data scientists/statisticians, instead of through support tickets

  20. include Deltalake parquet files

    Databricks enables the use of deltalake parquet format for storing datamart/DWH tables. It should be referenced in the catalog too
