how can I import data from multiple containers for Microsoft Search?

I want to use Microsoft Azure Search to look through JSON BLOB containers.

The wizard only appears to let me set up one connection (connection string) to a BLOB container, but I want to index all (multiple) BLOB containers within a storage account.

Is there any way to do this?

Many thanks

    Thanks for reaching here! Indexers operate at the container level so there's not a way to define an indexer to loop through all blob containers. Generally, you can create an indexer per storage container. Depending on how many containers you have, this can become difficult though (services have limits to the number of indexers you can have).

    Assuming you have a manageable number of containers, its recommended you create your first indexer in the portal and then use a tool like postman or our vs code extension to quickly create the additional data sources and indexers required. You can have multiple indexers all point to the same index.

    Let us know if further query.
