Difficulty with Getting Started

Vote:
 

I'm trying to evaluate your Episerver.Find technology.

I've created an index at http://find.episerver.com/MyServices and indexed some documents into it via your .NET client API.

When I try and query it using your sample javascript found here

http://world.episerver.com/documentation/Items/Developers-Guide/EPiServer-Find/9/Searching-With-Javascript/Autocomplete/

I get an error 

jQuery16407538182029966265_1426687634406({"took":1,"timed_out":false,"_shards":{"total":5,"successful":5,"failed":0},"hits":{"total":0,"max_score":null,"hits":[]}});

The ajax URL I'm using is http://es-api01.episerver.com//gordon_test/_search

Why is this?

I notice that your demo site here : http://find.demo.episerver.com/BasicSearch is broken too. Hardly a compelling demo ;-)

Cheers

Gordon

Hello Gordon,

The response, that you got, does not look like an error. It just does not have any search hits. Could you provide your code for the AJAX request?

Do you get any results if you open the URL in a browser: http://es-api01.episerver.com/<public_url>/gordon_test/_search ?

Hi Gordon,

Try the Fly Find demo site if you want to look at how Find can be used. Note however that the flight data is from 2013. 

EPiServer Find has a UI interface inside the administrative mode of EPiServer where you can see your indexed documents, make sure you have something there and that the thing you are searching on actually exists on the documents.

Regards,

T

Hi,

Thanks for the help. It seems that my content didn't go in correctly (I think i cleared it and didn't wait for it to clear fully before putting more content into the engine). Is there a way to check how much content is in the index? The MyServices page isn't very helpful that I can see.

I've got the simple autocomplete javascript working now which gives me something to fiddle with. Is there a simple way to get the site http://find.demo.episerver.com/BasicSearch  working? 

It's more what I want in order to evaluate things.

Thanks

Gordon

I recommend adding Find to the "Alloy" EPiServer Sample site. As Toni writes you will then get the Find admin UI where you can browse your index and tweak quite a few different things.
