  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  17. custom resource sets

    I need custom resource sets, I have a folder in ADLSg2 that has data in csv's broken down by Provinces, with the filename representing the province name and the same schema, but it isn't picking up the fact that it is really one table.

  18. Support Power BI scanning of another tenant

    Support scanning Power BI in a different tenant. The tenant id is a field within the Power BI data source, but it is disabled. I have a scenario where I have multiple tenants and need to scan a different tenant. The Power BI instance is in a different tenant than our Azure subscription.

  20. Relationships/Diagram view

    Data, especially coming from a source in 3rd normal form, can only really make sense when seen in the context of other data (relationships). We should have the possibility to create diagrams from the datasets, and show relationships in these diagrams and ideally comment them.

    A nice bonus would be to automatically scan some relational sources for said relationships (Az SQL DB, AAS, etc) although this should not prevent us from manually define relationships which may exist implicetly (like, say, between two files in a data lake).
