Ease of Use for ADLS Gen 2 Connector
I've given my client a bit of time to work with the ADLS G2 and Power BI and the feedback I'm getting from several of the users involved all comes down to the same issue. This is concerning the view the user gets of the data lake store when then are working through the 'get data' routine using the new connector for ADLS Gen2 2. They all want to see a hierarchical folder structure presented them as it is in Explorer on their own machines or in the Azure Storage Explorer. The data lake they are working with has a fairly complex folder and access security config so a flat view of this where the paths are shown in text is not helpful, particularly as the paths are mostly too long to be seen clearly in the dialog. They don't want to see the query editor unless they want to edit the query and in most cases they have no need to. These are business people who have the ability to manipulate and use information and want access to it in a way they are familiar with.
