  1. Transaction support in client SDKs

    it would be useful if documentdb transactions are supported in .net, rather than just storedprocs and triggers.
    using trans = newtrans()
    try
    db.addsomething()
    db.save() //ok
    db.addother()
    db.save() //fail
    catch
    trans.rollback
    end try
    end using

    We recently released support for client-side transactions in our .NET SDK.

    https://devblogs.microsoft.com/cosmosdb/introducing-transactionalbatch-in-the-net-sdk/

    We would like to get your feedback on this to understand if this meets your needs for transaction support. Please read our announcement and/or feel free to try our new support then please respond to this one question survey.

    https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=v4j5cvGGr0GRqy180BHbR_Lrg0nxRBtErN-GyphxUs9UQ0c1STlJTDVOT1JXUzhYVkYzU1JZSU5BTi4u

    Thank you.

  2. JDBC Support

    Provide a JDBC adapter to allow for multiple out of the box data solutions to connect to DocumentDB, ex TIBCO Business Works, SAS Reporting/BI, and Tableau.

    This would really open up use case possibilities.

  4. Provide Django integration example

    Provide an example of utilizing DocumentDB with Django. Even better would be showing the replacement of the default sqlite db in Django with DocumentDB.

  8. Add direct mode support to NodeJS SDK

  9. Official ruby support

    Other document databases support ruby or have robust community support for ruby. Azure DocumentDB has neither. This is a show stopper for ruby shops. We're not going to pick a backend tech with zero official support.

  11. Cosmos DB Linux ODBC Driver

    Would be great to have the ODBC driver for linux variants. We were looking to port a MongoDB application and require some sort of aggregation features on some linux machines.

  12. Allow multiple PartitionKey objects in QueryRequestOptions or fix LinqQueryable PartitionKey

    QueryRequestOptions for SDK v3 does not seem to allow multiple PartitionKeys. This would be fine, except when using GetItemLinqQueryable and adding the PartitionKey to the Where clause, it does not actual use partitioning lookup. We know this because the exact same query in storage explorer is quick (couple seconds). When used with linq and no PartitionKey in QueryRequestOptions, it takes minutes to come back. If I add a PartitionKey to QueryRequestOptions, it is quick.

    Hi John. Thanks for your suggestion. At this time we do not support putting multiple partition key values into the Query Request Options however you should be able to run this cross partition query by not setting that value and setting the Cross Partition option with just the partition key values in your where clause. You may also want to look at setting the degree of parallelism to tell the SDK to query each of the partitions simultaneously. Generally this should not take minutes to query.

    If you have additional questions or would like more help with this please feel free to contact us at askcosmosdb@microsoft.com and we can better assist you.

    Thanks.

  13. Change feed support for SQL API Python SDK

    See issue https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/5251.

    Customer says "I am looking for python code example to listen to change feed and process each item. Pointer to any relevant code would be helpful."

  15. Support an authenticated proxy for SDK

    Please support an authenticated proxy.
    I tied to use ConnectionPolicy.java to set our proxy server which is an authenticated proxy server. It seems to look the ConnectionPolicy.java isn't supported for an authenticated proxy.
    Not only SQL API and Java SDK but also other APIs SDKs would be great if an authenticated proxy would be supported. That would expand user's experiences.

    Reference:
    https://github.com/Azure/azure-cosmosdb-java/blob/master/commons/src/main/java/com/microsoft/azure/cosmosdb/ConnectionPolicy.java

  16. Extend Bulk Executor to cover Cosmos Db Table Api

    Bulk Executor api is very powerful but does only support Document db. We would ideally want to use Table api because Document db api does not support OData. But we also work with a high throughput in a big data pipeline where we use Bulk Ingestor api to do the data ingestion which does not work in Table api. It would be nice to have same bulk ingestion functionality for Table api

  17. Inject manual query when using IQueryable

    The MongoDB client allows you to insert a manual query when using IQueryable. This allows you to easily mix using strongly typed LINQ queries with a simple way to create dynamic queries.

    http://api.mongodb.org/csharp/1.4.1/html/26542a3b-3a2b-1984-c3ce-60266b6916bf.htm

    The .NET DocumentDB client should add something similar.

  18. Enhance TTL explanation for Rest API

    I had a hard time finding the "time to live" attribute for the REST API.

    Turns out it is named "expireAfterSeconds".

    If you could expand the description to include "time to live" + "TTL" would be great since that is what is mentioned in pretty much every other SDK and documentation Will make it easier to find for others.
