The Azure Search is a Microsoft-provided cloud platform for enriching the search capabilities of custom applications. The Microsoft Azure Search Service API allows developers to integrate these search capabilities along with other operational functionalities including index creation and management, data loading, search feature implementation, query execution, and result handling.
The API’s infrastructure features custom analyzers that facilitate the generation of indexes and searchable terms from text, Azure blob storage and table storage indexers for scheduling or setting on-demand data importation into the Azure Search platform, and filed mappings that support the customization of the data importation procedure of indexers.
The Microsoft Azure Search Service API operates as a RESTful platform that conveys requests and responses in HTTP or JSON format.
