Data profiling task improvements

There’s been some great feedback coming in about the new data profiling task. Jamie Thompson has a set of blog posts that cover all of the different profile options, and yesterday I read an interesting post from John Welch which describes a clever way to profile an entire database.

I wanted to mention that we’ve been incorporating some of the feedback we’ve been getting, and list some of the improvements/changes that should be showing up in CTP Refresh.

  • Quick profile page now has "All Tables" option
  • Clarification that the task uses ADO.Net Connection managers
  • Button to create ADO.Net connection managers directly from the task
  • Progress events to show task completion percentage

Keep the feedback coming!
