Properly support MSSQL in Data Discovery

Bank of Thailand have Oracle, Hive, MSSQL, and SAP as their main source.

We are trying to sell WKC to make a catalog out of vast different data sources for them.

The problem is Data Discovery can only do "shallow sync" of table from MSSQL.

The tables cannot be profiled nor use in Studio.

Current workaround:

Manually add each table in MSSQL database to WKC.

How should it work?

Data discovery shall add both Connection and tables into WKC just like it did with DB2/Oracle.

This shall be sufficient to fix the issue of unusable discovered tables fill all over WKC catalog.

    @nattapong - Microsoft SQL Server is functioning for Automated Discovery and Quick Scan, correct? The ask is just that those data assets can be profiled in the WKC Catalog/Project?
