How to get a summary of all the tables registed in Data catalog

sagdec 1 Reputation point

Hi everyone,

I am totally new to Data catalog and I am asked to show a summary of all the tables information registered in Data catalog. Is there a easy way to get it rather than using API? If cannot, can you share a short example of how to write the query? Really sorry to ask this question but I am not familiar with the REST API.

    Hello @sagdec ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    Using Portal:

    After you've registered a data source, you can discover it by using filtering and search from within the Data Catalog portal.

    Reference: How to discover data sources in Azure Data Catalog

    Using REST API:

    The Data Catalog has a Search query syntax: Search data assets

    Data Asset: Provides operations for working with data assets and annotations.

    For updated Data Catalog features, please use the new Azure Purview service, which offers unified data governance for your entire data estate.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
