Data Categorization

I'm trying to classify data from a given database as public, nonpublic and restricted. I'm looking for functionality similiar to SSMS Data Discovery tool.  In my review of the SSMS tool the issue is that it reads the fieldname, but not the data, as phone number could actually be last name and that isn't detected. I've searched to determine if Power BI has this functionality, but I've come up short and just wanted to attempt this last ditch effort. Thank you. 


Hi @Anonymous ,


As of now, such a functionality to classify data is not yet supported by Power BI.
