Add support for field collapsing
I've utilized field collapsing (aka result grouping) quite a bit utilizing Solr. Being able to group results together by a common element, then being able to page and sort based on that result list.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re considering this for a future release of Azure Search.
Azure Search Product Team
please update the details for this post (distinct values in search result).

Consider the situation that, two document have some same property and I want to select those same fields and count the document as one(distinct) and select that distinct document.

This is really an important feature for us. Is there any info on the current priority given to this proposal? Is it something Azure Search will support in the near future? Otherwise we might need to consider alternatives to it. Unfortunately there is no way to work around this limitation application side, especially in case of large result sets.

This is also really important for us as well, and one of the key differences between Azure vs. AWS (which does support this). It would be great to get some visibility into whether Azure will support this and when.
