The Power BI Desktopis missing integration with the Data Catalog and there is no online search functionality. The data catalog is a core component of the reporting solution so let me use it with the Power BI Designer

Are there any updates regarding the integration of the Azure Data Catalog with PowerBI? If not, what are some alternative data modeling tools that ARE integrated with PowerBI?

Where are we with this

In my opinion Azure Purview is a good direction to go.

The capability for PowerBi Designer to gain access (data source) to the Data Catalog will make life for me and my company so much better. This is a feature that will be greatly appreciated and is urgently needed.
Thank you.

If Power BI is REALLY envisioned as an Enterprise BI (especially Self-BI) Tool this feature is a MUST, i.e. there has to be a way to create & maintain a centralized Data Catalog and be able to discover, consume the data but also the semantic information/description of the entities & attributes.
Best way would probably be via Dataflows (which are strongly recommended by Microsoft for centralized data ingestion and “ETL”) and if done this way we could leverage on the Azure DataLake Gen2/CDM functionality?
Is there any answer or roadmap from Microsoft available yet?

tick-tock - any news @CharlesSterling?

This is exactly the functionality we need to make our Data Warehouse easier to use for non IT users and new hires

I've come from other tools that put metadata management at the forefront of their enterprise value proposition ( RDF, linked data, master data management)..... the fact that this issue is 4 years old with no response shows to the me that MS is more interested in sales of products than addressing the costs that it's products create through lacking data governance ! It espouses to be an enterrpise tool to unleash data..... when in fact it enforces a set of disconnected workflows which are almost ensured to create chaos in data when data is exposed to SME consumers through Power BI.

This feature combined with the ability to ingest, register, orchestrate, migrate, proppigate and administer metadata about models, schema, data transformations and apply controlled bussiness glossaries and taxonomies are the minimum for good governance. Come on MS !

Hello, is there any update on this idea?

R

We need this as well. Why is there no update??
