  2. Scanning of Analysis Services (Azure Analysis Services [AAS] / SQL Server Analysis Services [SSAS])

    Purview still lacks the ability to scan Analysis Services sources. Even though we're shifting to use more and more Power BI Premium, several companies have a large footprint of Analysis Services and we need to keep track of that. Particularly for my company, the lineage view in Purview is mostly broken as our most important reports are built on top of Azure Analysis Services reports.

  3. Delete assets and items from the catalog using the UI

    Currently it is possible to delete assets from the Purview catalog using the API but there is no way to do the same using the UI.

  4. Scanning/Lineage of stored procedures in SQL Server and Azure SQL

    We use stored procedures to transform our data. So we are not able to see these steps in the lineage visualization. Although it might be tough to analize all possible ways of transformations included in a stored procedure it would be great to get the information extracted. I think there will be a lot of customers who use stored prcedures who would benefit from it.

  5. Add Databricks Support

    Databricks needs to be added either as an External connection (in the same manner as Data Factory) or as a source. Our flow of data is:

    Source system > Data Factory > Databricks > Other (eg. Power BI, SQL Database)

    We can add storage accounts at the moment, but I would prefer the option to read from the Hive metastore. Would also be nice to have Databricks as part of the lineage.

  6. Add delta file support

    Hi,
    currently delta files are not read correctly. You read them as parquet.
    Please add delta file support.

  8. Scanning of Power BI datasets and gateway information

    Can we get information on gateway details on datasets/data flows?
    I would like to see information on Data Source name, type, server and database.
    We can then use this information together with on-prem scans.

    If possible, also the username would be nice to have.

  9. Automatic assignment of glossary terms based on classification

    We would like the ability to automatically assign glossary terms based on the classification of data found in scanned files and tables. For instance a classification like income, age, or gender could fall under the glossary term "sociodemographic features" and a classification as credit card no. or invoice under a glossary term "financial features".

  10. Support Data Factory lineage involving external data sources

    Currently, if I have an Azure Data Factory pipeline which has an external source (such as a 3rd Party HTTP or FTP source), the lineage for this does not get pushed to Purview. This is a gap in the mapping of the end-to-end lineage of many business processes. In my view, I should be able to see that a data pipeline begins with an external data source.

  11. Support Dynamics 365 as a data source for scanning

    Lots of org data lives within D365. Would be great to discover and classify that data.

  12. Metadata versioning in Purview

    It would be good to have versioning of metadata stored in Purview. A place where we can see all changes happened in metadata of an entity.

  13. Provide a change history for the Business Terms

    There is no option to see versions of, of the change history for terms. Would like to be able to see this e.g. if a Steward makes a change and asks for it to be approved (status set to 'Approved') it would be useful for the approver to see what changed. Would be good to see this as an additional tab.

  15. Manual changes on the assets impacting future scans from updating it

    If someone makes any changes to an asset through API or UI, then Data scan can never change it. In other words, changing a name, changing a field classification or even editing a description makes the entire schema definitive.
    We need a solution that even if making manual updates, the asset will be updated in the next scans to reflect the source deffinitions mixed with those manual changes.

  16. Data Curation process statistics / Completeness of Information

    It would be nice to keep track of the percentage of the assets that are already classified, with descriptions, with Owners/Experts associated, etc. This can help Data Stewards to know which areas they should focus on when prioritizing classification review.

    This feature, later on, could support workflow capabilities to automatically "certify" assets with higher degree of information fulfilled/reviewed.

  17. Relationship Browser

    If there is a way to visualize how objects relate to one another, it will help how with explaining how to join objects especially as you move through your analytics architecture. It will also help from a self service standpoint.

  18. Allow for Assets to be updated after they have been manually tagged

    Allow for Asset to be updated from a scan after the Asset has been tagged with a Classification and/or Glossary Term. Adding non-technical metadata should not prevent an asset from being updated during subsequent scans. The in house designed metadata repository that I manage can update technical metadata without disturbing the business metadata tags/cataloging.

  19. Scan all infrastructure in Azure subscription

    Ability to scan all infrastructure in Azure subscription and automatically add new data sources and scans. The logic to identify of which data source should be add or skipped can be based on Tags.

  20. Have the lineage for PowerBI and such to link back to individual tables and views
