  1. Azure Search Alerts

    Azure Search should have alerts similar to Azure SQL database. For example, I should be able to set up an alert to warn me if my index is almost full, et.c

  2. Add a description field to index for better manageability between indexes with similar names.

    We create a lot of indexes for experiments. Over time it becomes harder to remember the differences between indexes with similar names. We could add something to the index name to distinguish them. But it makes the name messy. It'd be better to have a description field in index to describe what the index is.

  3. clone index

    I'd like to implement 'versioning' indexes for each DocDB repository.
    In example, DocDB collections are crawler-2016 and crawler-2015, each of which will be indexed to index-2016 and index-2015 in Azure Search.

    In this operation, 'Clone Index' button could be helpful greatly as I have to create each index one by one. Actually I screen-captured previous index fields and tick-tick index checkboxes which created from DocDB import datasource.

  5. "Script as JSON" on Index Blade

    On the index blade in the portal I like to be able to create my index with the UI for speed. I would also like to have a script option that I can then use for repeatability.

  7. Expose the Analyze API in the portal

    It would be great if you could expose Analyze API in the portal as the Analyze API is very useful to know how Azure Search’s analyzers breaks text into tokens.

  8. Suggestions on Azure Portal based on Analytics

    If a user has activated the Analytics storage there are key values there that could trigger some kind of notification on the portal like the ones SQL Database implemented with the Index Suggestions or App Services with scaling.
    For example:
    If the user service is having X amount of 503s responses (could be a % over the amount of 200s), it means that he should be looking at adding a new replica.
    If he is using an old API version, recommend an SDK update.

  9. Provide basic web interface

    Provide a basic web interface that can be used with the service with no coding (something like the SharePoint Search Center).
