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.

  1. Support for enhanced security - including security trimming and AD integration

    I suspect that having a search service with two levels of access (admin and user) isn't likely to be a great solution, particularly if it applies to all indexes within the service. For example, to be able to upload a document, you need the same key as someone that can create indexes. I was left with the feeling that there probably is a need for some sort of role-based security where users/keys can be associated with particular indexes within the service. Even better would be something that allowed for vertical and/or horizontal filtering at the level of each index. Is…

  3. Make the blob indexer faster

    From the tests I made, currently a single blob indexer in S2 with 1 partition and 1 replica is only able to process between 50 000 and 75 000 small office documents (1 to 4 pages) in a 24 hour period.

    The current solution which would be to restructure millions of blobs into "directories" with max 75 000 blobs in them and have 12 indexers is completely out of the question due to the insane pricing model and the time it would take to both, modify consumers with new paths and move blobs to a new structure. The latter being…

  4. "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.
