We definitely recognize the popularity of this feature, and we discuss it constantly during the planning phases. However there are certain technical limitations in the system that add a large amount of development cost. Because of the cost and the fact that there is a workaround available, other features get prioritized over this one.
That being said, please keep voting for it. The popularity of the feature does help bring it up and makes us reconsider every time.
Apologies for the delay.
We’re doing some research both on the specifics of this ask as well as what it would take to support this.
Is the ask here to do the same thing that regular Azure AD does (see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2014/12/18/azure-active-directory-now-with-group-claims-and-application-roles/) or is are there different requirements around this for Azure AD B2C?
Update on this item.
Bytecode implementation is now targeting the first half of 2020 to provide stability and performance improvements in the platform.
Apologies for the delay. We are continuing to work on this. Will announce here when this becomes available.
It is true that Gremlin.NET covers a fluent API. But Gremlin.NET sends Gremlin Bytecode which isn't supported by Azure Cosmos DB yet. So I suggested to support Gremlin Bytecode, see: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/263030-azure-cosmos-db/suggestions/33632779-support-gremlin-bytecode-to-enable-the-fluent-apiChris shared this idea ·
This is currently not on our road map. However, we will review this item in the future as we prioritize future releases.
