Possibility to delete documents that correspond to a filter
It would be useful to be able to remove from an index documents that correspond a specified filter or a facet. Currently you need to retrieve all those documents from the index and only then can you delete them.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re considering this for a future release of Azure Search.

This would save us from unnecessary round trips to the server and improve performance when deleting large number of documents.
In out scenario user can delete module which can contain hundreds of documents.

We have a scenario where we have many data sources all feeding into one index. Right now, if we remove one of those data sources, there is no easy way to remove their data from the index.

This would be very useful for validating a delete.
