Azure cognitive Search Pricing

Bonyfus Martin 0 Reputation points

I have implemented an azure cognitive search service in standard tier. There about 1.7 million documents in the index and roughly equates to about 900mb of storage. There is only 1 search unit assigned to the search service.

The data is fetched, created, updated and deleted via a .NET Web API. The API uses the azure cognitive search nuget package for the CRUD operations against the index.

We are not running an index update daily because after the deployment the data should pretty synced with the search index and the sql database.

Is there any cost involved for the number of calls/hits to the azure cognitive search API? I am not only fetching documents, also creating, updating and deleting documents via the API.

    @Bonyfus Martin Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A, apologize for any inconvenience caused on this.

    As mentioned in this documentation, Billing is based on capacity (SUs) and the costs of running premium features, such as AI enrichment, Semantic ranking, and Private endpoints.

    There is no meter on the number of queries, query responses, or documents ingested, although service limits do apply at each tier.

    You can refer to this documentation for more information about plans and manage costs in Azure cognitive Search.

    Feel free to reach back to me if you have any further questions on this.
