Export/Import search indexes
Allow users to export and import search indexes. Creating a search index via the portal takes quite a bit of time and if the service has to be moved you end up doing it all over again.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re considering this for a future release of Azure Search.

Since we can't scale up, at the very list you should have the option to import a search index from another account/service
when we set up the different environment, It would be helpful, if we can create a new index and import data from another index.
