Search provides new extensibility features that make it easier to implement your own search provider or indexing service; add new content types that can be indexed by search; and create new categories for filtering this content on the search result page.
Add a custom search provider or index service
In Telligent Enterprise 4.0, you can more easily add your own search provider or indexing service. To do so, see articles about creating your own search provider or implementing the index provider in the developer documentation.
Custom content types
This release's APIs give you the tools to create new content type plugins for your custom platform applications, and to index that content using search.
Dynamic search results
Using the APIs, you can now define a custom search result page category filter that fits your application's specific needs and define what metadata returns on the search result page via the plugins. For example, for a calendar event, you’d probably want an event date and event location to appear on the results.
For more information about search extensibility, consult the developer documentation on the APIs.
