How can we improve Azure Search?

Support for Dictionary DataType

Dictionary datatype is very common. Often, we'd like to store our data as a dictionary. Currently, I serialize and store it as a string. It'd be great if the dictionary type is supported.

    Dictionary is a way of storing/handling dynamic data, which is what we need. We currently use ElasticSearch directly because we need Dynamic Mapping and Dynamic Types. In effect we index JSON documents of unknown structure, but have dynamic mappings that makes ES understand our structure so we can still do queries.
