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. Allow for metadata that disappeared from the original document to be also removed from the indexed document

    This is a user suggestion to allow for metadata that disappeared from the original document to be also removed from the indexed document:

  2. Support to calculated fields

    Hi there,

    It would be important to have a way to use calculated fields that we could use basic functions to it and also use existing fields' values to calculate the value of the new field. So, we could reside the logic at the index level, instead of the code + SDK and import clients.

    Thank you

  6. Introduce natural language search query to azure search

    Add natural language capability to azure search so that from the query string search service itself can identify any filters or sort is mentioned in it. Similar service is available in Power BI Q&A.

    Eg: Show me top 10 results regarding Microsoft.

  7. Creating a Search account is very slow

    I frequently delete and re-create an account with the same name for dev testing purposes. I have noticed that the wait time keeps increasing after each cycle. Are you cleaning old metadata properly? I often end up waiting 45 mins to an hour for a search account to be created. (Using a Basic configuration in Central US) Please check that using an account name that has been used before does not cause long wait times.

  9. Microsoft english analyzer ignores the word "mine" completely

    While testing some searches I found that searching the word mine doesn't return any results.
    This probably applies to other english words as well, I found this one by chance.
    Calling the Analyze API with:
    {

    analyzer: en.microsoft,
    
    text: mine dog test

    }

    Returns:

    tokens: [
    
    {
    token: dog,
    startOffset: 5,
    endOffset: 8,
    position: 1
    },
    {
    token: test,
    startOffset: 9,
    endOffset: 13,
    position: 2
    }
    ]

    Using en.lucene analyzer returns all 3 tokens correctly.

  11. .NET SDK IndexingParameters Configuration customization

    It appears the Configuration dictonary for IndexingParameters only has get; and can't be set. I need this so that I can programmatically configure my new indexer to have "parsingMode" set to "jsonLines"

  12. Remove basic plan field count limits

    Why is there field count limits? Lucene itself doesn't impose field count limits. 100 on the basic plan is very small especially considering that once you use blob storage indexing it consume about 10% of your field counts.

    I've developed a product to have Umbraco CMS based indexes hosted in Azure Search but it's problematic due to the field count limits since 100 is very easily reached. Even 1000 doesn't seem to need to exist. Things like Elastic and Solr have this configurable and not a hard limit.

  13. Indexing Collection data type from azure data factory copy activity is not supported.

    Hello,
    I have a use case to index collection (list) data into azure search index. I am using azure data factory to load data into azure search index. But it seems azure data factory copy activity does not support copy of String Array data type. The support is only available with primitive data types. Could you please add this functionality as many real life use cases have array/list in the data set.

  14. Allow Search and Storage accounts to be protected with Firewall settings within same region

    Currently it is not possible to create a data source within a storage account in the same region as the search service if both resources have the firewall settings enabled. Only recommendation from support currently is to have the resources in different regions and use the external IP address for each in the allowed list of IP addresses of the relevant resource (though yet to get this working too!)

  15. I wasn't able to apply fuzzy logic using search explorer

    I should be able to apply fuzzy search using Azure cognitive service on my data source. Any misspells weren't yielding any results.

  17. Provide option to boost documents based on click feedback

    If for a certain search term, an item is clicked more often than others, then that item should automatically rise in search results ranking, for that search term.

    This functionality exists in Lucidworks Fusion and is known as 'boost with signals' where signals are the clicks captured along with the search terms.

    Search terms matching for the boost should not be exact match only, i.e., all variants of the search string should be considered equal when applying the boost. e.g., if for 'buy laptop' search term, article A is clicked the most (the threshold for no. of clicks can vary,…

  18. Visibility/metric for the usage of MultiHoming for validating if it works as expected

    We are looking to use the Multi-Homing feature for configuring the Azure search instance in the secondary region to retrieve data from the geo-replicated read-region instance of CosmosDB for making sure the dependencies are co-located in the same region. Though multi-homing feature is a great feature to resolve our multi-region requirements, there is no metric or visibility to validate if the setup is working as expected. We would like to have a metric to show which Cosmos DB instance the Azure search is indexing data from.

  20. Allow disabling of term frequency as a ranking factor

    We built an internal order lookup tool. In many of these cases, proximity is absolutely valuable as a scoring factor, but term frequency has little to no value.

    Right now, searching for "Jones Gary" will give higher ranking to an order that has the term Jones in both the customer name and in one of the address fields, putting it higher than a result containing Jones B Gary.

    I've tied 'hacking' around it by adding a wildcard as described below, but it doesn't have the intended effect.
