What is Microsoft Purview?

Microsoft Purview is a family of data governance, risk, and compliance solutions that can help your organization govern, protect, and manage your entire data estate.

Microsoft Purview and Microsoft Fabric together

Microsoft Purview works with Microsoft Fabric so users can discover and manage Microsoft Fabric items in Microsoft Purview applications. The integration currently allows you to take advantage of these applications:

  • Microsoft Purview Data Catalog - automatically view metadata about your Microsoft Fabric items in the Microsoft Purview Data Catalog with live view in Microsoft Purview.
  • Microsoft Purview Information Protection - allows you to discover, classify, and protect Fabric data using sensitivity labels from Microsoft Purview Information Protection. Sensitivity labels can be set on all Fabric items. Data remains protected when it is exported via supported export paths. Compliance admins can monitor activities on sensitivity labels in Microsoft Purview Audit For more information, see Information Protection in Microsoft Purview.
  • Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention (DLP) - DLP policies are currently supported in Fabric for Power BI semantic models only. DLP policies detect upload of sensitive data into semantic models. They can detect sensitivity labels and sensitive info types, such as credit card and social security numbers. They can be configured to generate policy tips for semantic model owners and alerts for security admins. DLP policies can also be configured to allow data owners to override them. For more information, see data loss prevention policies.
  • Microsoft Purview Audit - all Microsoft Fabric user activities are logged and available in the Microsoft Purview audit log. For more information, see track user activities for Microsoft Fabric and track user activities in Power BI.

Microsoft Purview and Microsoft Fabric will continue to work more closely together. Soon you'll be able to use more solutions to monitor and manage Microsoft Fabric as well.
