    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

    A common need for users of Azure Table Storage is searching data in a Table using query patterns other than those that Table Storage provides efficiently, namely key lookups and partition scans. Using Azure Search, you can index and search Table Storage data (using full text search, filters, facets, custom scoring, etc.) and capture incremental changes in the data on a schedule, all without writing any code. To learn more, check out Indexing Azure Table Storage with Azure Search: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/search/search-howto-indexing-azure-tables

    So glad this is under review, we really need the ability to index specific fields on tables. You can do a lot with a solid partitioning strategy today, but in almost every case, I still need this feature to maximize performance.

    We are more focused around data synchronization than schema synchronization at the moment. We may revisit the priority of this in the future.

    Chris Kirby commented  · 

    data sync is certainly more important, but this should be high on the list imo. When you have 3 or 4 db's in a sync group, its very difficult to get a change propagated successfully...especially if you are modifying existing tables/columns in a schema.

    My current method of doing this is to first disable sync on all of the schema entities that my deployment script will be modifying and let that propagate. Second, i then deploy from my db project to all db's in my sync group. Third, i refresh the schema from the hub in the sync group settings and re-enable sync on all the new and changed entities. Finally save and hope for success... which happens more often than not.

    My ideal scenario is to simply deploy my changes to the hub and have it be responsible for automating the propagation and failure rollbacks. It would also automatically sync all new entities, or perhaps provide a setting in the sync group to set those types of defaults.

    Thanks for the great work on this service!

    very happy to hear this is under review...by far my biggest pain point is when i see a generic error message with a guid for reference. I need to know whats wrong quickly, as i'm sure many of us do. I know its preview, but its such a critical production tool for our hybrid infrastructure that we already rely on it for a few apps.

    This is a very interesting idea! We would like to know what specific usage you have in mind – for example, are you continuously generating operational logs on-prem and would like an utility to easily upload these files into blob storage for further analysis, maybe using HDInsight? Please post your comments!

    Chris Kirby commented  · 

    I personally would use this feature for transferring sql azure backups and table data from azure to my on prem systems...for local usage, disaster recovery, and analysis. I also have usecases where i need to automate the transfer on on prem data to azure blob storage as well.

    SSL only requires multiple IPs when the client is on Windows XP, using an older version of Internet Explorer. Most modern browsers support SNI (Server Name Indication) and thus don’t require multiple IPs.

    Support for multiple IPs is under review in the team.

    Windows Azure Websites offers the ability to have smaller deployed websites. The ability to have multiple roles on a single VM instance is still in planning.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of blob storage lifecycle management. The feature set offers a rich, rule-based policy engine which you can use to transition your data to the best access tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle. See our post on the Azure Blog to get started: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blob-storage-lifecycle-management-public-preview/preview/.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at DLMFeedback@microsoft.com.

    Thank you for your suggestion! We would like to know what your concern is around schema modification – is it because you don’t always get granted schema modification rights? Are you concerned about administration/maintenance overhead of additional objects? Or are you concerned about additional overhead it places on the database?
