Azure Purview expands relational database support - IBM DB2, MySQL and PostgreSQL

Azure Purview is a unified data governance service that enables organizations to easily create a holistic, up-to-date map of your data landscape across on-premises, multi-cloud, and SaaS applications with automated data discovery. Now Purview adds IBM DB2, MySQL and PostgreSQL to its growing fleet of data source support to further expand coverage of various types of relational databases. You can scan your databases, then manage and govern your data in Azure Purview.


Register and scan

Azure Purview data source administrators can start by registering a DB2, MySQL or PostgreSQL source under the data map, and set up reoccurring or one-time scan. You can choose to scan the entire database(s) or only the selective schemas with interest. During scan, Purview extracts metadata including the server, databases, schemas, tables, views, table/view columns, etc., and fetches lineage on assets relationships among tables and views.

Learn more about the prerequisites and step-by-step instruction to register and scan DB2, MySQL and PostgreSQL in Azure Purview.



Search and browse assets

Once the scan completes, you can discover assets via search or browse.

Search for the assets by keyword, and narrow down results by using the facet filters.



To browse, click on the “Browse assets” tile on the Purview home page, navigate to the “By source type” tab and select the data source type. You can then see the list of assets brought in by the scan.



View and manage metadata

Click into the asset to view details including the properties, schema, lineage, and more. You can also add business metadata like descriptions, glossary terms, contacts, and manually classify the data assets to further manage and govern your data in Purview.
