Azure Search

Azure Search is a search-as-a-service solution that allows developers to incorporate a sophisticated search experience into web and mobile applications without having to worry about the complexities of full-text search and without having to deploy, maintain or manage any infrastructure

  1. Provide an agent to watch a filesystem for document changes

    I'm currently using dropbox for this, and it would be nice to bypass this step, and go directly to search

    Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.

    In the meantime – we do support indexer through Azure Files which would allow you to do what you’re looking for. Another alternative would be to use Logic Apps (or Flow), and create triggers for your file system, pushing the data into a blob or Posting it directly to the search index.

    Thanks,

  2. importing data in Azure search services

    Why can't I import data into Azure search services? I'm using the free trial, and there's no Import Data selection on the task bar.

    Could you explain what you mean by ‘import data’. In Azure Portal we have ‘Import data’ command that enables you to connect to variety of data sources such as SQL Server, Cosmos DB, or blob storage. Then indexer can automatically sync data between your data source and your search index.

  3. filterAndMergeMany

    We need a way to update/merge all documents matching a filter criteria. E.g. only change one field for all documents matching a $filter specified.

  4. Having contains option in lucene searchfilter

    We have scenarios where based on context, we need to apply field-level filters- and seems clunky to create the filters through multiple 'or' statements on each of the filter parameter

  5. Allow larger (>16MB) files in blob storage when using one to many indexers

    When using a one to many indexer with files in Azure Blob Storage the indexer appears to still attempt to read the entire file at once. As a result files > 16MB fail to be indexed because they exceed the payload size limit.

    Since its one to many the indexer should be able to read individual lines from the file and index them without reading the full file.

    Additionally there is no helpful error message when this happens, it just appears as if the indexer never ran.

  6. Rest end point indexing capability like voyager search engine, that would be helpful otherwise we would have duplicate data in azure

  8. Create mechanism to increase the maximum running time for cognitive search skillsets or blob indexing with image analysis beyond 1 hour.

    The limit of 1 hour is not enough for using the indexer with cognitive services using OCR.

    While the OCR should not take that long, I think what you are saying is that indexers that require a bit of processing don’t index too many documents in a given time period (1 hour).

    We are looking for mechanisms to improve throughput in our enrichment pipeline at this time. Thanks for the feedback!

  9. Lack of features

    The azure search seems to lack many fundamental features. Ability to rename the index, clone the index are a few to name.

  10. Add tagging to each token such as POS, allowing to filter on them and receive them in results

    In Lucene you can add metadata to each token, which is then returned on search results.

    It would be great to be able to add predefined tags/metadata during indexing that will be later returned on search results. Filtering results based on these tags would also be great.

    Examples of tags can be:
    Part of Speech
    Dates
    Numbers
    Entities (person names, organizations)
    Locations (city, country names)

  11. Skill: extract and index URLs / URIs

    Many documents include references to websites. Just as you identify people or places, please add URL identification, indexing, sorting, filtering, etc.

  13. Drill down into queries

    When looking at queries, while I'm interested in full queries such as "purple shoes" and "red blazers", I'd also like to see an index of the individual words that are used in the search terms, plus the ability to drill into the query list ie: which queries contained the word "blazer"? It doesn't have to be in the UI, as long as it's downloadable. (Ideally, it would be downloadable using REST-based queries and/or OData, and be consumable by Excel/Data Explorer in Excel/PowerPivot/Tabular data models in SSAS).
