The Microsoft Purview hub in Microsoft Fabric

Microsoft Purview hub is a centralized page in Fabric that helps Fabric administrators manage and govern their Fabric data estate. It contains reports that provide insights about sensitive data and item endorsement, and also serves as a gateway to more advanced Purview capabilities such as Information Protection, Data Loss Prevention, and Audit.

Get insights about your Microsoft Fabric data

Use the Microsoft Fabric data section of the hub to see insights about your Fabric data. It contains two reports that help you analyze the data.

  • The items tab shows you insights about your organization's Fabric items - how many there are, what kinds they are, how many are promoted or certified, how these promoted and certified items are distributed throughout the workspaces, etc. Such insights might be used to drive adoption of certification in workspaces.

  • The sensitivity tab shows you insights about the sensitivity labeling of your organization's Fabric items. You can see label coverage by workspace and by item type, you can see the ratio of labeled versus unlabeled items, and you can see which labels are used most.

The visuals in the reports are interactive, and you can select items and drill down to get deeper insights into the endorsement and sensitivity label coverage of your data. For instance, you could filter on a workspace to see what items are in the workspace and how many of them are certified or promoted, or you can identify workspaces that have the greatest number of items with no sensitivity label, so that you could reach out to the data owners and ask them to take action.

View the Purview hub insights report

The Purview hub insights report enables administrators to visualize and analyze in greater details the extent and distribution of endorsement and sensitivity labeling throughout their organization's Fabric data estate. You can access the report by selecting the Open full report button in the Microsoft Purview hub. The report is located in the Admin monitoring workspace, and you can also access it directly from there.
