General availability: Azure SQL Database Full-Text Search

12 October 2015

Full-Text Search is now generally available in Azure SQL Database V12. For applications that manage and store character-based data in Azure SQL Database, Full-Text Search provides fast, rich search functionality integrated into the database platform. Full-Text Search is available in all service tiers in Azure SQL Database V12 through familiar TSQL syntax and Microsoft SQL Server tools. In addition to preview capabilities, the feature supports .xml doc types and self-service diagnostic experiences through XEvents. Users can easily troubleshoot and have visibility into issues such as indexing errors or unsupported doc types. This optimizes the search experience and brings it closer to the on-premises capabilities of SQL Server. For more details about the Full-Text Search feature, see:
