Accessing the Purview Portal in Your Fabric Environment

Kevin Chant enables a feature:

In this post I want to cover accessing the new Microsoft Purview portal in your own Microsoft Fabric environment.

To clarify, I mean a Microsoft Fabric environment you have created for your own use. Like the one I covered in a previous post.

You can do this in a trial environment thanks to the new capability provided by Microsoft last year to infuse Microsoft Fabric items into Microsoft Purview. Which Microsoft covered in a blog post about Microsoft Fabric items in Microsoft Purview.

Read on to see how.

Updates to Microsoft Purview

Wolfgang Strasser keeps us informed:

It’s been a while that there were some (major) announcements around Microsoft Purview Data Governance. But it seems that August (2023) is a good month with some quite huge announcements:

Click through for those announcements. I particularly appreciate the free version. Even though it’s fairly limited, the price is right for people who are just playing around with the system and don’t want a massive bill.

Configuring Compliance in Microsoft Fabric

Kevin Chant checks a box:

Compliance is a very important aspect when working for data. Especially when you must work to standards like PCI-DSS. With this in mind I looked into the compliance story for Microsoft Fabric.

By the end of this post, you will have a better idea of how to test configuring compliance for Microsoft Fabric. Along the way I share plenty of links.

Read on for step-by-step instructions, as well as those links.

Try Purview (Almost) for Free

Wolfgang Strasser wants to try Microsoft Purview but doesn’t want to break the bank:

And my reaction was – Nice, very nice.. I can try and create Microsoft Purview instances for free and test new features..

BUT: I wanted to be sure and check, how much metadata (sources, scan results, data assets, classifications) can fit into 1 MB of metadata.

Read on for Wolfgang’s test, as well as the full set of costs around trying out Purview.

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.

Understanding Purview Pricing

Rolf Tesmer disambiguates:

Like all services in Azure, there’s associated costs when using the service, and naturally Microsoft Purview is no different. If interested in reading the standard pricing model for Microsoft Purview it has been outlined here – and follows a similar layout to all Azure price models.

However – as a result of such a broad range of capabilities, its pricing model is one of the more difficult to understand!

Read on for a PDF which hits the various charges you’ll see.

Purview Access Policies and SQL Server 2022

Srdan Bozovic links Purview and SQL Server 2022:

The focus of this article is on using Microsoft Purview to enable access to user data as well as specific system metadata in SQL Server 2022 running on Azure Arc–enabled servers.

With the SQL Server 2022 release, the goal is to enable three main scenarios:

– Browsing data in user-defined tables and views.

– Performance monitoring with system commands, functions, and views.

– Security auditing with security-related system functions and views.

If Azure Arc-enabled servers are required for Purview to work, I think that will seriously hinder uptake.
