How can we improve Azure Search?

Enable indexing of gzip compressed blobs

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46245505/indexing-gzipped-blobs-in-azure-search

I am trying to setup Azure Search over Azure Blob. The json blobs are compressed using gzip.

When I try to index the blobs as-is, I get the exception :

"Error detecting index schema from data source: "Error processing blob https://mystorageaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer/urlencodedname with content type ''. Status:UnsupportedMediaType, error:""

Looks like Azure Search blob indexer does support indexing ZIP archives (application/zip MIME type), but not gzip-compressed files.

    My JSON data is stored in blobs as application/zip [to minimize my API bandwidth requirements (38M json == 1M json.zip)

    I'd like to use the JSON field mapping [currently in preview] facilities by having the indexer unzip and then apply the index config to the resulting .json
