Building Custom Lineage in Purview

Alex Crampton writes some Python code:

The aim of this blog is to explain how to create custom Purview processes, enabling you to add lineage from processes that are not tracked out of the box.

As covered in this blogAzure Purview can help with understanding the lineage of your data, offering visibility of how and where data is moving within your data estate.

Lineage can only be tracked out of the box when using tools such as Data Factory, Power BI, and Azure Data Share. Lineage is lost when using other tools like Azure Functions, Databricks notebooks, or SQL stored procedures.

Read on to see the code, as well as what you can do.
