“Get started with Azure Search in the portal” and other Twinks…

Eugene Shvets [chaosrealm4] Hi @BryanWilhite tell us what you want to do with JSON blobs? Add chunks of JSON to index in the portal? Use them to infer index schema?

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 I'm experimenting with search for my tech Blog [songhayblog.azurewebsites.net] composed of static JSON files

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 so I'm already generating a poor man's static index file (offline), driving search by title on the Blog

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 I'm assuming that @Azure Search would give me a cool way to search content instead of just title

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 it would be cool to have the portal see a Blob container of static JSON of the same schema as a formal data source

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 finally Azure search would have a 'word-cloud' feature, generating tags/keywords with a sliding ranking range for disk space

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 at least, a JSON blob container should be treated like a database table (based on a JSON schema file?) -thx for your time!

Eugene Shvets [chaosrealm4]@BryanWilhite Got it, you want to parse JSON as structured properties, not a single chunk of text, right? Pls vote 4 [feedback.azure.com]

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 yup voted for that today

Eugene Shvets [chaosrealm4]@BryanWilhite a q: for this scenario, will you have only JSON blobs, or a mix of different kinds of file types?

Eugene Shvets [chaosrealm4]@BryanWilhite If #azuresearch offered JSON parsing, would you be interested in being an early adopter & helping us validate it?

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 yes, i would like to help (time permitting)

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 I have a container of JSON blobs of the same schema/type -ver. 1 of your system wld scan the container and infer multiple types

Bryan D. Wilhite [BryanWilhite]@chaosrealm4 another alternative is one blob container with folders -and each folder *must* contain JSON of the same schema/type
