Support add-ins for custom file types (e.g. DICOM)
Would like to have DICOM files indexed for search in the Azure Portal. Support for adding custom logic for parsing arbitrary file types would be sufficient.
This functionality is now available to all customers as a part of Cognitive Search feature of Azure Search, using “custom skills”. See:
- Introduction to Cognitive Search: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/search/cognitive-search-concept-intro
- Integrate custom skills: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/search/cognitive-search-custom-skill-interface
Please try it out and give us your feedback.

To index only the blob metadata and ignore its content, set the 'dataToExtract' indexer configuration property to 'storageMetadata'. See https://aka.ms/azsearchblobdatatoextract.
