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

  2. Add search/filter text box to left CMDLETS, RUNBOOKS, & ASSETS panel

    Add search/filter text box to left CMDLETS, RUNBOOKS, & ASSETS panel to ease in selecting various items. Currently the full list of CMDLETS is very long to find the one you want.

  3. Azure Blob Storage soft delete is not compatible with Azure Search

    To track deletions, a soft delete policy is required in the data source. Something Azure Storage supports. However, it is not compatible with Azure Search. This should be an out-of-the-box feature in Azure Search.

  4. Remove basic plan field count limits

    Why is there field count limits? Lucene itself doesn't impose field count limits. 100 on the basic plan is very small especially considering that once you use blob storage indexing it consume about 10% of your field counts.

    I've developed a product to have Umbraco CMS based indexes hosted in Azure Search but it's problematic due to the field count limits since 100 is very easily reached. Even 1000 doesn't seem to need to exist. Things like Elastic and Solr have this configurable and not a hard limit.

  5. higher numbers of scoring functions for higher pricing tiers

    Azure Search should support higher numbers of scoring functions for higher pricing tiers, since they have more compute resources available.

    Current limit is 8 function maximum regardless of pricing tier.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  12. Japanese OCR character split problem

    OCR Cognitive Skill is described in Docs as being compatible with ja (Japanese), but when actually used, Japanese words are output with each character separated by a space, so the index is properly Cannot be created. This is a fatal problem.

    Now I'm creating a custom skill to add the process of removing the read space, but it's not perfect.

    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.

    Thanks,

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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%
