delete All data in a container
To be able to delete, all the data in a container through azure UI.
-> Keep all the settings, just drop all the data.
this is useful during development when we have to delete and recreate a container and then recreate all SP, UDF, etc manually, and recreate all the indexes. It saves a lot of development time and reduces errors as cosmos is a case sensitive database.
Thank you for your suggestion. At this time this is not on our road map.
Currently customers tend to include the definition of their databases, containers, stored procedures and UDF’s either within their main applications themselves (CreateIfNotExists) or as standalone applications. Then include in their deployment pipelines using custom tasks so they can accurately recreate their environments, rather than creating resources by hand in the portal or elsewhere. This also allows them to be managed as artifacts in their source code repositories so they can be accurately recreated.
We are currently investigating building support for deploying stored procedures and UDF’s via ARM templates which may work for you to quickly and easily re-provision your environments. But we have not concluded our initial look on this at this so do not have an ETA for that at this time.
