  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Support for ADLSGen2 and SQLDB/Pools over private endpoints

    What is the timeline for this support to be available? We plan to use secure Vnets for connecting to the resources.

  4. Lineage should link External tables in Synapse to DataLake objects

    I'd like to look at a data lake object and easily determine if there are any external tables referencing it. The Exernal table may be referenced by a view or PowerBI or DataFactory.... I'd like to see it all end-to-end through all the virtual layers

  5. 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. Business Glossary custom attributes in our templates can not be fully edited once created

    Public preview release. When maintaining a Business Glossary custom template, if I create a custom attribute and update the template, if I then want to change the name, type of attribute and change/remove 'choice' options they are greyed out. I need to be able to edit them. 'Make required' seems similar but inconsistently i.e. not easy to change.

  11. IoTHub/Event Hub & Data Explorer for Lineage

    I have an IoT Hub that is feeding data into Data Explorer. It would be great to register an IoT Hub as a source so I can start building lineage off of IoT Data

  14. 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.

  15. Import Extended Properties metadata from Azure SQLDB on Scan

    Right now I have Table and Column level extended properties set in the database that describe the table or column. When Purview scans the Server, I expect that it will get the schema, table, and column level descriptions stored in extended properties autonomously. Refer to my screenshots of it not working. One screenshot is SSMS, showing that the table description is there, the other is showing that the table description is blank in Purview.

  16. Import metadata from Power Designer

    Here in the company we have many databases well documented with rich informations, like friendly name of tables, columns, description and all other fields.

    Would be amazing to import this documentation from Power Designer into Purview, this will save a lot of work and will generate significant value for the company.

  18. Override managed resource group name in ARM template

    Many enterprises have resource group naming conventions which block creation of non-compliant RG names.

    Please add this to Purview's ARM template.

  19. Allow hierarchies or linked attributes in order to categorize terms or technical assets

    Some of our Business terms and assets are owned based on their 'Data Category' (Finance, HR, Logistics, etc). Within these are sub-categories, and the same below that ( 3 level hierarchy). We would like to see a way (in the UI) of being able to select a node in a hierarchy, or have linked attributes which filter choices based on what you choose for the first.

  20. 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.
