How can we improve Azure SQL Database?

Support full-text indexing

Our application is heavily dependent on it. So this is a blocker right now.

        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.

        Can we at least have an update please? Is it now in the near term horizon, or is it even still planned at all?

        This idea was submitted 5 years ago, and surprisingly it hasn't been implemented yet. Way to go Microsoft.

        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.

        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.

        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.
