Support for Postgresql for using indexers
Please provide support for ingesting data from PostgreSQL, similar to the existing support for Azure SQL Database.
Please let us know if the below connector doesn’t meet your needs.
All Azure OSS databases (MySQL and PostgreSQL) should have first class indexing support in Azure Search, preferably without the need for an Azure Data Factory (ADF) instance. Is PostgreSQL support also in private preview?
is there any way for Azure Search to just read/index a Postgresql database without actually copying all the data across?
We want to stay on Postgresql but use Azure Search...
You can use Azure Data Factory PostgreSQL connector (https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/data-factory/data-factory-onprem-postgresql-connector) as the source and Azure Search connector (https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/data-factory/data-factory-azure-search-connector) as the sink to move data from PostgreSQL to Azure Search.
