Purview APIs to scan data sources

Microsoft

Do Purview APIs support below actions without having to do them from Studio?

  1. Register a data source
  2. Scan a storage account
  3. Schedule a scan (lowest frequency supported as of today is 7 days)
  4. Scan using custom rule sets and classifications?
  5. Adding data share accounts as external connections

Hey Vamsi, Our public Purview API reference is not yet available. When released, you will be able to do all of the above actions via REST calls.

These will land sometime in Q2 2021
Hi Daniel,
Do we have specification for these REST APIs available now after GA release? Appreciate if you can provide us some links. I have been looking at following docs but some of the links like "properties" not detailed

Thanks!
