Create tools for developing search in Visual Studio
I would like to have a set of tools for developing an Azure Search instance in Visual Studio, analogous to what SSDT is for SQL Server.
In an ideal world, these tools would allow me to define indexes, indexers, datasources, and all other components necessary for my search index. The tools would also include ability to publish my changes to the instance, either through Visual Studio itself or from a CI build in Release Management.
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.
