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

    We have no plans to surface the CPU, or other resource consumption, of the infrastructure that powers Azure Search. We’re looking to go in a direction where you don’t need to think about the underlying machines and only need to be aware of the search API and data in your search service.

  3. No way to offset when sending pages to Azure Search

    When using Azure Search entity recognition with larger documents, there is no easier way to mark an offset for each page based on the position in the text. This makes it difficult to join the entities returned afterwards.

  5. Re-Indexing framework

    Azure Cognitive Search should allow for ease of rebuilding index from scratch without impacting the existing search. Flexibility in custom ingestion should also be allowed.

  6. Allow changing of attributes of a field once data has already been indexed

    Common attributes users want to change are type (like int to string), doc-values, stored, indexed etc.

  7. 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%

  8. Multiple matching words listed higher

    Is there a possibility to get search ranked results based on multiple matched words? I will give an example:
    The input is "event test example" and I would like to have the results with more matching words higher than the other.
    So the response could be:
    1. "event test example"
    2. "event example"
    3. "event"
    4. "example"

    Is there a functionality in Azure search for this process?

    Thank you!

  9. 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…

  11. 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

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

    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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. DataSource Definition JSON always shows Connectionstring = null (By Design)

    DataSource Definition JSON always shows Connectionstring = null (By Design).

    The recommendation is that, instead of null, says: "Hidden for security purposes".

  18. Having contains option in lucene searchfilter
