Manage data sources at scale with Azure Purview: Azure Multiple Source registration and scans

At the Azure Purview launch, we announced the ability to register and scan individual sources. At Ignite, we announced that we are now making it even easier to register and scan your Azure data at scale, with the Azure multiple source registration feature, now in public preview. This capability allows you to register an entire Azure subscription or resource group in Azure Purview.

You can set up scans on an entire subscription or resource group of Azure data sources using our secure credential mechanism for authentication.

You can configure your scan with resource specific scan rule sets and create them inline if the existing ones in your catalog do not meet your business requirements.

You can set up schedules on your scans on a weekly/monthly basis, or run it once.  You can also manage, update, and view a summary of your Azure Subscription or Resource Group data source in a single pane of glass view.

And you can discover assets along with their metadata, schema, and classifications because of these scans on your entire subscription, via the Purview catalog.

 

Finally, customers who do not wish to register their Azure subscription can still register individual sources such as Azure SQL DB or ADLS gen2.

great post!

 

I've noticed the following, while reviewing Purview for my organisation:

 

  • Once a SQL database, SQL Server, Azure Blob Storage has been registered how do we rename an object?
    We have examples of meaningless default names & can't change them!

Regards,

Andy
