What does the “wi” stand for in SQL Azure Automatic Index Naming?

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I have a SQL Database on Azure that is giving me a performance recommendation for an index.

What does the "wi" part of the name? I’m guessing something to do with the include part of the statement. With Include?

CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [nci_wi_TableName_468BA2FCEC4455FB9A6ACA94430E4935] ON [dbo].[TableName] ([Id]) INCLUDE ([ColA], [ColB]) WITH (ONLINE = ON)

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

If my memory isn’t completely gone, it means "worker insights". Not sure if this was in a blog post or a Channel 9 video. It’ll probably take a bit to find the source.

Or maybe "workload increase" — one of the detectable performance patterns that might call for a new index recommendation.

Why does the name matter? If you choose to implement the recommendation, you can change it according to your organization’s standards.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
