  1. Per index pricing model with no index cap

    In my scenario I need to offer a single index per tenant. As my SaaS app grows I want to be able to add indexes as new tenants are on-boarded. Currently I have to purchase large blocks of indexes that will go unused until I on-board enough tenants. Then when I hit the cap I have to wither migrate to a new plan or (if I am past the cap of the largest plan) start partitioning tenants across multiple Search Services rather than scaling out from a single service to X number of private/isolated indexes.

  2. Index specific admin keys

    As of today Azure Search providee index specific query keys, but only global admin keys. In a multitenant scenario all tenants then have to share the admin key in order to index data. In order to provide sufficient tenant isolation in multi-tenant scenarios we need index specific admin keys. Especially for those cases where each tenant run in process isolation - hence the individual tenants can't access other tenants connection strings.

  3. Provide warmup procedure

    When we scale out Search replica, we can find delay peak right after it scaled. It gives throttled query, so I want to reduce it when we apply scheduled replica change.

    It would be good to provide "predefined warm-up query sets" After-Scaleout event. What about to give textbox, and GET-queries are performed line by line multiple times.

    Note that I'm using Azure Automation with this script to change replica count by schedule; https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/azure-search-change-c0b49c4c
