Azure Search

Azure Search is a search-as-a-service solution that allows developers to incorporate a sophisticated search experience into web and mobile applications without having to worry about the complexities of full-text search and without having to deploy, maintain or manage any infrastructure

How can we improve Azure Search?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        • Extend Tag Boosting by "searching" instead of "filtering"

          Azure Search with Tag Boosting will give a boost to documents that have "exact" tags in common with the input query.

          If a tag in index is "salt lake city" and one from query is "salt lake", the document doesn't get a boost. Even worse, since I believe Tag matching is using "filter" routine, it is case-sensitive.

          Yes, we can do multi-column search, but one column search with tag boosting is a way more fast and returns better relevance results focusing on the main column.

          So it would be great if Azure Search extends the current Tag Boosting to use…

            • Proximity ranking

              when searching for two or more terms, give a higher rank value to terms near to each other
