Purview Issues - Managed Attributes, Configurable look and feel in Purview portal

LPP 80 Reputation points


A few questions on purview.

  1. I am trying to add the managed attributes created to my assets.

My asset is a tsv file.

When i edit the assets, the managed attributes is always disabled.


  1. Is the purview portal look and feel configurable ? Example, with my company logo, change background image ?
  2. some of links in the purview portal might not be needed for a data reader role.

Example data map, data insights

can these be hidden when a user with data reader role log in ?

thank you

    @LPP - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    I'm happy to help you with your Purview questions.

    Regarding your first question, it's possible that the managed attributes are disabled for your asset because they haven't been enabled for the asset type. You can check this by going to the Purview portal and navigating to the asset type definition for your asset. From there, you can enable the managed attributes for the asset type and then try editing your asset again to see if they are now enabled.

    In case, if you are experiencing the same. You may try the following steps and let us know.

    • Clear “Cookies and Cached data” of your browser.
    • Private Mode (New InPrivate Window).     
    • Try in different browser.

    As for your second question, the look and feel of the Purview portal is not currently configurable. However, Microsoft is always working to improve the product and may add this feature in the future. In the meantime, you can provide feedback to Microsoft through the Purview portal to let them know that this is a feature you would like to see. User's image

    Regarding your third question, it's not currently possible to hide specific links in the Purview portal based on a user's role. However, you can control access to certain features and functionality in Purview by assigning users to different roles. For example, if you don't want data readers to have access to the Data Map or Data Insights features, you can assign them to a role that doesn't have access to those features.Chart showing Microsoft Purview governance portal roles
