  1. Would like to see rich text, tables and images supported for Business Term attribute entries

    For 'text' type attributes we would like to see rich text is not supported (even just carriage return for lists); additionally the insertion of tables and images.

  2. Would like to be able to add new roles to the 'Contacts' tab.

    Would like to be able to add new roles to the 'Contacts' tab e.g. Data Owner, who might be a different person than the people tasked with being the Stewards.

  3. Allow person/group to be a type associated with a custom attribute

    Custom attributes cannot be given the 'type' of 'person/group' (in the same way 'Experts', and 'Stewards' are). This would be used for e.g. adding an 'Owner' who might not be the steward maintaining the entry.

  4. If a Business Term uses an expired template, an alternative template should be able to be chosen

    If a terms is created and subsequently the template used is expired it should be possible to update the template used by the term. At the moment it is greyed out.

  5. 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.

  6. Simplify Glossary approval

    Add an "Approve" button to "Glossary terms" page so that you don't need to edit every single term individually. Or is that intentional?

  7. Include connector to SAP HANA (on-prem/SCP/Azure hosted)

    I know there is an on-going private preview regarding SAP ECC and S/4 HANA connectors. However, my organization still uses SAP HANA on-premises, in a privately owned appliance. Since we have a huge footprint on this technology, we would like to have a connector for it. Additionally, we use different layers of Calculation Views to model the data inside the HANA database, so it would be useful to have a lineage view from base tables in SAP ECC to the calculation views used to expose data to end users / Power BI. FInally, as we have plans to migrate or…

  9. Merge common data services (dataverse) into Purview

  10. Labeling

    Discovery & Classification integration with SQL Server/SSMS and Azure SQL/Synapse.

    Suppose the customer has already put some effort on customize their labeling taxonomy columns (on SSMS our Security Centre) followed by the classification.

    Will Purview integrate with this customization and recognize this classification or will need to configure Microsoftt 365 again?

  12. Import metadata from Erwin

    In one of our customer, they have DB2 as source, and there is no option to fill with coments the table, column and all other fields with business catalog.

    Because this, they have all logical modeling in Erwin in a logical view.
    Would be amazing to import it.

  13. Support classification of files by their names

    Often files have a naming convention that can be used to classify or label their content (such as this is a log file for application X, etc). It should be possible to classify and label file-based datasets by their name, similar to the ability to classify columnar data by the column name. The current file labeling based on office 365 is not a solution for this requirement.
