Support full-text indexing
Our application is heavily dependent on it. So this is a blocker right now.
Title says it all
For any application search functionality is minimum and a must have feature. I would like to see this feature on the urgent basis. Please, please include Full-Text search in SQL Azure.
When will FREETEXT Searching be available in SQL Azure?
Free text search is something that we are working on, although not in the near term horizon.
Any ETA? Anyone watching this? ...Bueller? ......Bueller?
Steve Cole commented
Can we at least have an update please? Is it now in the near term horizon, or is it even still planned at all?
Where is it?
2014 year on ... still nothing ...
This idea was submitted 5 years ago, and surprisingly it hasn't been implemented yet. Way to go Microsoft.
Any update on this???
Seriously, this was planned two years ago? Can we get an update on this? Please add FTS functionality to SQL Azure. I cannot think of an app that doesn't have to search text.

+1 on Deployment Blocker.
With this feature our whole solution could be moved to Azure. Without, it stays On-Prem.

OMG!! full-text is extremely important! Our application based on NopCommerce 3.2 where there is cool feature instant search that based on full text indexing. we can not move to azure without full text search feature. please let us know timeline.
A timeline would be extremely useful!

Has there been any updates to this since the last replied posting on December 19, 2012?

Any update on this please.
Microsoft it would be great to get another update please -- even if that update is, no, not in the next 12 months or whatever.
I waited a year for the Azure team to do something about it before switching to Amazon AWS Cloud Search. It has been another year since then and MSFT has done NOTHING about it. If you really need text indexing, switch to Amazon AWS. You will be very happy.
I'm guessing this is not happening this lifetime?
Chris Kirby commented
easily my #1 feature request for app dev on azure at this point. If not sql full text, then a fully supported indexing solution like Lucene.Net.
We also need full text search.
Please kindly implement this feature ASAP.
Our customers are asking for full text search all the time, but we cannot add this feature because Azure SQL do not support it...

Are there any updates on this? This "idea" was shared back in 2009 and it was supposedly on the roadmap almost two full years ago.

Lucene.Net on top of SQL Azure is a nice free alternative. http://leoncullens.nl/post/2012/11/18/Full-Text-Search-on-Azure-with-LuceneNET.aspx
We really need FullText search in Azure, for some technicals reasons we can't move on Lucene.NET. We really need that ASAP !!
