Please support on-prem installations
Can we get Search on-prem? Is this always going to be an Atlas-only feature?
We need this feature in an on-premises solution. We have a quick search in our application that scans fields like first name, last name, date of birth, street, zip code, etc.. A text index is perfect for this. But when the user enters something into the quick search, the results should be displayed immediately. For this use case we need the possibility to search for prefixes, too.
Unfortunately this feature is only available in Atlas. However, this feature is very important for our application. Due to Google and co this kind of search is expected by our customers.
We would appreciate it very much if this feature would be available on-prem, too.
For local testing, be sure to follow and vote on https://feedback.mongodb.com/forums/924868-atlas-search/suggestions/38786779-allow-the-ability-to-test-atlas-search-locally
At this time we still have no plan to support Atlas Search for on-prem installations--however it is a common enough request that this idea will remain open to gather further input from the community.
Two major areas: not being able to test locally is HUGE. Also, full dependency on Atlas, is also bad, since some clients do not want to use Atlas.
While we're not running this on-prem but within atlas, not being able to test things locally or in unit tests is a pretty big downer.
