Azure Cosmos DB supports the CONTAINS, STARTSWITH, and ENDSWITH built-in functions which are equivalent to LIKE.
We are planning to add support for LIKE since this is a top requested item, but meanwhile, please use the other equivalent keywords.Bob commented
Azure Search starts at a ridiculous price of $250 per month. Totally unacceptable for a startup. Having a DB native "like" search would help.
For applications that require cross document join, please consider the Gremlin API: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/create-graph-dotnet, which has primitives for joins, traversals, and other graph operations.
We are evaluating expanding the SQL grammar to support graph functionality, which will provide the ability to perform cross-document JOINs. Please upvote this item to help us prioritize this work.Bob supported this idea ·
