    Hello @sakuraime ,

    (UPDATE:25/07/2022): Microsoft Purview team released an open source solution accelerator to extract lineage from Databricks and ingest it into Microsoft Purview: microsoft/Purview-ADB-Lineage-Solution-Accelerator: A connector to ingest Azure Databricks lineage into Microsoft Purview (

    This solution accelerator, together with the OpenLineage project, provides a connector that will transfer lineage metadata from Spark operations in Azure Databricks to Microsoft Purview, allowing you to see a table-level lineage graph. It supports Delta, Azure SQL, Data Lake Gen 2, and more.


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

    Unfortunately, Azure Purview lineage (Azure Databricks Notebooks) won't show up out of the box.

    I would suggest you to vote up an idea submitted by another Azure customer.

    All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

    Alternative option: Azure Purview uses Atlas behind the scenes, thus you can probably capture this lineage using the API.

    Here's an example of where Spline was used to track lineage from notebooks:

    This article talks about how to get started with the Purview REST API:
