  1. Support all elements of data governance suite

    There is no support for quality assessment, automation, data marketplace, access control, data masking, data profiling, datasets previews, practical data relationship management and visualization, and much more. The features that were released are embarrassingly limited. For example, the business glossary is no more than a nice interface on top of excel. It is not possible to handle any semantic or to associate terms with automatic classification rules.

  2. White spaces in the name of the collection

    I want to be able to use white spaces in the name of the collection.

    I don't think white space can be used at the moment, there are times when it is inconvenient to use a lot of - etc.

  3. Max asset size

    According to doc, Maximum size of an asset in a catalog is 2 MB. That seems quite low, and I was able to scan a 4MB XLSX file anyway. What does this limit mean?

  4. 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…

  6. Derive Lineage based on actual data using AI/ML

    Lineage or show link or correlation between tables and cols with help of model or keys or values in each col, etc. it is hard to manually find it when there are too many interconnected systems. also want to see end to end lineage for col level.

  7. 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.

  8. Override managed resource group tag values in ARM template

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

    This is very important especially if we are not able to set a cost centre tag on the managed resource group.

    Please add this to Purview's ARM template.

  9. Support scanning for Synapse Serverless pool metadata

    I couldnt use the serverless pool as a target for a scan. It would be great as a metadata layer across Data Lake storage to make it tidier for purview to scan

  10. 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.

  11. Allow for deselecting schemas in Synapse Data Warehouse

    We have dedicated schemas to house table backups and temporary work tables that get added and dropped throughout the day. Deselecting by table doesn't really work once the process gets scheduled.

  12. 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.

  15. 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…

  20. Support scan AWS S3 as data source

    Do you expect to add new data sources coming from AWS? AWS S3 and AWS Redshift would be very interesting.
