Parameters

Parameter Name Description
name Service name must only contain lowercase letters, digits or dashes, cannot use dash as the first two or last one characters, cannot contain consecutive dashes, and is limited between 2 and 60 characters in length.
sku The SKU of the search service you want to create. E.g. free or standard
replicaCount Replicas distribute search workloads across the service. You need 2 or more to support high availability (applies to Basic and Standard only).
partitionCount Partitions allow for scaling of document count as well as faster indexing by sharding your index over multiple Azure Search units.
hostingMode Applicable only for SKU set to standard3. You can set this property to enable a single, high density partition that allows up to 1000 indexes, which is much higher than the maximum indexes allowed for any other SKU.
