Enable schedule for elastic database pool jobs
For elastic database pool jobs we need a way to schedule the job to run at a specific time each night. Please make this function available from the portal.
This will enable us to automatically defragment indexes and run other db maintenance over night.

For the existing Public Preview, you can schedule this capability via PowerShell, but I completely understand the desire for ease of use from the Portal. We are currently re-architecting Elastic jobs to be a feature directly integrated into Azure SQL DB as a feature of the service. We are currently in Private Preview with the new capability which doesn't require the customer to host the other Azure services. If interested in joining the Private Preview, please contact me directly ddove(at)microsoft(dot)com. Currently the Private Preview exposes a sprocs for creating and managing jobs, but we will be redesigning the Portal (to create and manage jobs including specifying schedules) and providing PowerShell and REST APIs.
