Azure Purview now supports Erwin, Google BigQuery and Looker

Azure Purview now supports Erwin Mart and Google BigQuery and Looker as sources. Customers can now register and scan metadata from these sources. 





Functionalities Supported 

  1. Register and Scan: Once the sources are registered, customers can now run a full scan on these sources. For Erwin, customers can either scan their entire Mart or scope scans based on Models.  For Looker, we can scope scans based on Looker projects. For BigQuery, we can scope scans based on Datasets 
  2. Classify: Customers can manually classify the data assets in these sources 
  3. Lineage: For every source supported, Azure Purview fetches lineage between the data assets.  

For example, as shown below, the BigQuery View has one table as an upstream source. The view query used to fetch from the table will also be represented in the lineage view. 





Permissions and access 

  1. Purview Data Source Administrator can register and trigger scans on these sources. 
  2. In addition, the Data Source Administrator should be a Data Reader or a Data Curator as well. 


Get started today!
