Transient Error on Azure Search


over the last week we have had 4 different Azure Search instances fail with a "transient error", has anyone else had this issue?

we are not doing anything special with the indexing, just a few custom fields etc.

this has happened to multiple dev, UAT and production Azure Search instances, and is not seeming like a coincidence anymore

Search instances have been stable for over 6 months.

  • Hi Ian,

    Transient suggests a connectivity issue, have you checked the Azure Status page / history? If it is affecting mutliple services it may have been a service issue, for example Microsoft making underlying storage updates etc.

    Worthwhile raising a ticket with Azure support if you haven't already.
