Can Purview pull SQL Table description into Purview Data catalog.

I recently started using Azure Purview for Data Governance and I have a question.
When a table description is added to a SQL table, can that description be visible from Purview data catalog.

Thanks very much for your help!!

Hello anonymous user-6983,

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

Unfortunately, no. Azure Purview do not pull that automatically.

But as a workaround you may try exploring this blog by one of the community volunteers and see if you can take a similar approach. This blog uses pyapacheatlas which lets you work with the Azure Purview and Apache Atlas APIs in a Pythonic way. - Using PyApacheAtlas to import SQL Server extended properties to Azure Purview

In case if you have any feedback or a feature request for the product team, I would recommend you to please share in IDEAS forum here - https://feedback.azure.com/d365community/forum/82d7bddb-fb24-ec11-b6e6-000d3a4f07b8. Please do share the link once the feedback is provided so that we can share it with internal teams for reveiw.

Hope this will help.
