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

  1. Offer reserved pricing on Azure Search (similar to AWS ElasticSearch)

    AWS offers up to 52% discount when committing to a 3 year reserved instance for AWS ElasticSearch.

    There is no reserved pricing option for Azure Search.

    Please provide reserved pricing, similar to Cosmos DB/Azure SQL, at a discount comparable to AWS.

  2. Storage Optimized tier in the Basic tier pricing range (L0)

    For a small business with low traffic and data just over the 2GB limit of the Basic tier it´s really hard to justify to upgrade to standard tier for 3.3x more cost. The performance and scaling for Basic tier is more the enough but the 2GB limit is just to low.
    It would be nice if you could introduce storage optimized layer(L0) for the lower end of the price range where performance and scaling is not important but the storage amount is more than 2GB.

  3. Support correlated search on complex collections

    Now that Azure Search supports complex types, it would be useful to be able to combine full-text search and strict Boolean filters when querying over complex collections. Currently this is not possible -- search.ismatch()/ismatchscoring() are not allowed in lambda expressions, and using sub-fields of complex collections in full Lucene queries has uncorrelated semantics.

    For example, if you want to search for hotels that have deluxe rooms with city views, none of these gives you exactly what you want:

    search=Rooms/Description:(city views) AND Rooms/Type:(Deluxe Room)

    search=Rooms/Description:(city views)&$filter=Rooms/any(room: room/Type eq 'Deluxe Room')

    $filter=search.ismatchscoring('city views') and Rooms/any(room: room/Type eq 'Deluxe Room')

    Instead, what you'd…

  5. Azure Blob Storage soft delete is not compatible with Azure Search

    To track deletions, a soft delete policy is required in the data source. Something Azure Storage supports. However, it is not compatible with Azure Search. This should be an out-of-the-box feature in Azure Search.

  7. TLS configurable property

    Could we have a configurable property to set the minimum TLS version that search service will accept (as per Redis Cache and other resource types). With the removal of 1.0 and 1.1 on 6th Feb 2020 it would have been useful to set in advance to ensure that all endpoints talking to it were using 1.2 - I would assume that this same scenario will exist in the future when new versions make 1.2+ obsolete.

  8. Search Explorer in the Portal should interoperate better with SDKs

    Currently, Search Explorer provides the full URL of the GET request for the Search REST API. To use a query from Search Explorer in the SDK, you have to parse out the parameters by hand, and sometimes URL decode them.

    It would be better if Search Explorer could provide code snippets for each supported language (C# and F# for now, Java, JavaScript/TypeScript, and Python when those SDKs are available) that show how to call the Search API using the parameters that the Portal user has typed in.

  10. Record Identifier for Child Entities in Highlights

    Currently, only the field name and the snippet of text are returned in the Highlights collection. In scenarios where matches are found in sub or child entities, it can be essential to identify which of the child entities the match was found - more important than the field name in most cases.

    Example 1:
    An index is built with Topics which have collections of Messages associated with them. Topic has fields like Title and Summary, and Message has fields of Author, Heading, Body

    Highlights would only provide a Key of something like "Title", and "Message/Body"
    If the desired rendering of…

  11. How to rename index or indexer? once it is created?

    Correctly it is not possible to rename index or indexer once it is created. It is difficult to admin or developer to create index or indexer from the scratch. Please provide some option on indexer should be update. Also provide some option to create indexer using existing one.

  14. MicrosoftLanguageStemmingTokenizer cannot process word 'F#' correctly

    'F#' is a well-known programming language, but if you tokenize sentence contains 'F#' with "en.microsoft" analyzer, it will be omitted. However, 'C#' works fine and does not have such issue.

  18. Azure Table Indexer Data Source Definition should allow specific select column options along with specifying filters

    When defining datasource of Type Azure Storage Table in the Query field, only options in the examples I see is like (PartitionKey eq '0') or something like that, but there is no example which would allow us to select columns along with the filter conditions.
