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. Add an RSS indexer

    An RSS feed indexer would be helpful because it’s so generic. Also easy to create reuse on different platforms. (Request from Twitter: https://twitter.com/SeidoKevin/status/585660800980877313)

    Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.

    In the meantime – you could consider using LogicApps to create triggers for your RSS feeds and push the data either into a blob for an Azure Search indexer to pick up, or directly send an HTTP post request to push the data directly into the indexer.

    Thanks,

  2. Support Explain API

    The explain api computes a score explanation for a query and a specific document. This can give useful feedback whether a document matches or didn’t match a specific query.

  3. Provide an agent to watch a filesystem for document changes

    I'm currently using dropbox for this, and it would be nice to bypass this step, and go directly to search

    Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.

    In the meantime – we do support indexer through Azure Files which would allow you to do what you’re looking for. Another alternative would be to use Logic Apps (or Flow), and create triggers for your file system, pushing the data into a blob or Posting it directly to the search index.

  4. 'Skip' limit should be far higher - int.MaxValue

    'Skip' is limited to 100,000 - which makes it impossible to iterate over an entire dataset, unless there's some meaningful way to segment the data set first.

    Given there's an upper limit on the complexity of the queries we can pass in 4500 chars (it seems?)

    It's very, very awkward to perform tasks on large complex datasets.

    Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.

    There are major performance implications for supporting this which we will need to work through.

  5. Pricing for more documents with less storage size / less documents with more storage

    It would be great to have a pricing model where we can index large amounts of small sized documents. (e.g.: 15M documents in 12 GB of storage).
    Same goes the other way around, less documents, with a greater storage size.

    The current Azure Search business model charges for storage consumed and not by document count. Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.
