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. Allow limiting blob documents to be indexed based on a specific metadata value

    We only want to index a subset of documents in our blob container and in order to do so now, we have to have two blob containers and manage them. Similar to how you can limit document types to be indexed or not, the ability to restrict the scope of Blob objects based on a metadata value would help reduce our operating expenses and document management overhead. We could add a new Metadata name called "AzureSearch" and if set to "true", would be picked up by the indexer. Removing it from the index would simply require changing that value and…

  2. TLS configurable property

    Could we have a configurable property to set the minimum TLS version that search service will accept (as per Redis Cache and other resource types). With the removal of 1.0 and 1.1 on 6th Feb 2020 it would have been useful to set in advance to ensure that all endpoints talking to it were using 1.2 - I would assume that this same scenario will exist in the future when new versions make 1.2+ obsolete.

  3. Annoying ListAdminKeys in Activity Logs

    It seems that Azure Search has not Activity Logs blade. But when I see the whole Activity Logs of a subscription, there are so many ListAdminKeys activities of Azure Search resource.

  6. multi-word synonyms

    Do we have multi-word synonyms?
    If yes, can words between 2 synonym sets overlap? i.e. can I have the following 2 synonym sets:
    USA, United States
    United, together

  10. Improve SLA to 99.99%

    The current SLA is only 99.9%. That is out of sync with typical enterprise SLAs of 99.99% that our own applications must abide to for our customers.

    Hence, this lower than typical SLA endangers our own SLAs. Please improve to 99.99%

  12. Record Identifier for Child Entities in Highlights

    Currently, only the field name and the snippet of text are returned in the Highlights collection. In scenarios where matches are found in sub or child entities, it can be essential to identify which of the child entities the match was found - more important than the field name in most cases.

    Example 1:
    An index is built with Topics which have collections of Messages associated with them. Topic has fields like Title and Summary, and Message has fields of Author, Heading, Body

    Highlights would only provide a Key of something like "Title", and "Message/Body"
    If the desired rendering of…

  13. Allow Index Management by Azure CLI

    Implement create/delete/update indexes via the Azure CLI in addition to Azure REST Api capabilities. You can create the search service itself of course, but i see no way to create the index or indexers (e.g.) using Cli

    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,

    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.

  20. 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.
