Previously we have announced the Public preview for Microsoft Fabric Items in Microsoft Purview and starting from December 13th 2023, scanning Fabric tenants registered with the Fabric data source in Microsoft Purview will capture metadata and lineage from Fabric items including Power BI. The new feature is available in all Microsoft Purview public cloud regions.

 

There are no additional configuration steps needed to enable scanning Fabric items besides Power BI for existing scans. To create a new scan, the experience of registering a Fabric tenant and setting up the scan is similar to the Power BI tenant and shared among all Fabric items. You can start by registering your Fabric tenant by following the guidance  Connect to your Microsoft Fabric tenant in the same tenant as Microsoft Purview (Preview) or Connect to your Microsoft Fabric tenant from Microsoft Purview in a different tenant (Preview).
