  2. Add delta file support

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

  3. 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.

  4. Scanning of ZIP/GZIP files

    The contents of ZIP/GZIP files are not currently supported for scanning. We would like this content to be scanned and added for classification

  5. Automatic refresh of scan status

    When scan is performed, it is not easy to see that scanning is actually running or if it is complete - and in the screen that shows that - the screen should refresh automatically and not require clicking refresh to see if scan is ongoing or complete

  6. Trigger a scan upon change of data in a connected data source

    Similar to continuous scanning, identify an incremental delta in data source to set off a new scan to discover additional assets and classify

  7. Scan full contents of unstructured data for classification

    When scanning unstructured data to determine classification, Purview currently only scans a sample (the first 20mb) of the file. We would like an option to scan the full contents of the data.

  8. Simplify the pricing

    It's not a big problem right now as public preview but the charging model is too complicated comparing ADC in the past

  9. Can we select which Power BI Apps or App Workspace we want to Scan?

    When I scanned my Power BI source, it scanned everything including all the DEV, QA and other App Workspaces and Workspaces which we have. This is lot of data and noise for normal user to consume when they search. It would be great if the scan for Power BI also gives us option to predefine the App or App Workspaces we want to scan.

  10. Azure SQL & SQL Server : Ability to choose object types & Schemas while scanning

    Provide an ability to choose the object types out of Views , Tables & Stored Procedures. It will be great if we can choose only the required schema to be scanned.

    Note : As of now for schema scenario able to make it work only for required schemas by providing permission to the Purview account for specific schema only.

  11. Scanning/registering of defined instances ON-Prem MS SQL

    I can register and scan on-prem servers without declaring DBMS Instance but get no results from databases that I have access to in other DBMS Instances on the same server - used HQOLYMSQL12D\SQL2016D in the registration with no results in the scan. If this isn't the proper place to pose this please let me know where.

  12. Allow selective scanning of Data Factory pipelines

    It would be nice if like a database where you can select specific tables for a collection. You could let us select which Data Factory pipelines are related rather than adding everything in the Factory.

  14. Support Common Data Model format for Data Lake scanning

    Data Strategy/Data Governance topic is very hot.
    In order to manage standardization and interoperability, Common Data Model can be enforced on curated and certified data so that we could leverage on a common Data Landscape to integrate and manage different industries/sectors solution.
    What I see that is missed is the support from Purview to be able to scan natively data lake folders that stores data according to the CDM format and industry models onboarded trough Industry Data Workbench. Also in terms of policy management, imagine that I could be able to enforce a policy that data stored in a specific…
