The .NET client API of Episerver Find is fluent providing a readable code that lets you index and search for actual domain objects with great flexibility. It is built on the premise of "convention over configuration," meaning it "just works" out-of-the-box using a set of default conventions. Using code, you can customize these conventions to suit your needs. This topic describes how configure Find to start working with the .NET API.
References and configuration
To use the Episerver Find .NET API, first add references to the required assemblies, EPiServer.Find.dll and NewtonSoft.Json.dll. Next, configure the service URL and default index name in web.config/app.config.
Open the web.config/app.config file and add the following:
<configuration> <configSections> <section name="episerver.find" type="EPiServer.Find.Configuration, EPiServer.Find" requirePermission="false"/> </configSections> <episerver.find serviceUrl="http://..." defaultIndex="myindex"/> </configuration>
Now you can create an instance of the Client class and start working with the Find service. See Client class for more details about next steps.
