How can we improve Azure Search?

Managed service identity support

Indexing Azure Storage requires a storage account key which makes it more cumbersome to rotate that storage account key. Indexing Azure SQL DB requires a username/password making it more cumbersome to rotate that password. Please allow us to enable a Managed Service Identity (MSI) for Azure Search so that we can index data sources using that identity rather than with account keys and passwords.

    Hi, any update on it? There is even option to enable Identity on AzureSearch instance, and then... it seems that we cannot use it for data source definition :(
