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.
I am using Azure mobile services with server scripts(node.js) backend. How can I use lucene.net or azure search for that? Is it an alternative for Full Text Search?

As Gautam Jain asked - is Azure Search what we should be using, instead of SQL Server's full-text search?
Gautam Jain commented
Today Microsoft launched Azure Search - http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/search/
Still not clear. Is this is answer to our full-text demand?
Gautam Jain commented
Microsoft, is someone really listening to our full-text search request for Azure?
ridiculous for MS not to support FTS in SQL Azure. I tried today at 15/08/2014, still not supported... shame on you MS
Heh. "Not in the near term horizon..."
You know, for a company that has supposedly placed massive bets on the cloud, MS certainly seems to do a great job ignoring customer feedback.
What is the latest on a Full Text Index?
Any ETA? Anyone watching this? ...Bueller? ......Bueller?

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.
