Azure Purview Workflows moved to Public Preview 10 March. This functionality enables customers to orchestrate the create, update and delete operations of data entities, have validation, and approval of these data entities using repeatable business processes.
The benefit of using Purview workflows is higher quality data, policy compliance, user collaboration, and change tracking awareness across the organization.
As part of public preview, two other features have been enabled
There are two kinds of workflows at the moment:
- Data governance for data policy, access governance, and loss prevention. Scoped at the collection level.
- Data catalog to manage approvals for CUD (create, update, delete) operations for glossary terms. Scoped at the glossary level.
There are workflow templates to help create those workflows to save time in creating one.
Business terms within an organisation become a critical part of the everyday organisation. To improve efficiency in managing approvals this has been automated. The terms appearing in a business glossary can use the workflow templates to allow approved terms to be added, updated or deleted in the catalog.
The four templates available for the business glossary are:
- Create glossary terms
- Update glossary terms
- Delete glossary terms
- Import terms
